Hi drone community!
It's founder Aaron Avila


I just got done registering my Mavic 2 Zoom with the FAA.


In part 107 our spotter must maintain line of site with the done.
What about my spotter using a pair of Binoculars?

NO, unaided visual line of sight only, so no using binoculars, telescopes, or spy satellites

Well. someone is keeping a line of sight at all times, when they hear it fly over! no one said it needs to be YOU, the pilot

Very tricky question there Aaron, but I read somewhere a while back that you or your spotter cannot use aided visual apparatus.

Lucas775 is correct. No use of visual aids

In the UK VLOS must be unaided (glasses acceptable but nothing else).

So Goggles are not legal?

Grey area as I'm not too sure if spotters are permitted in the UK - so yes if you have another person watching the drone otherwise no. I don't use spotters or goggles so not something I've had to look in to.

On quick glance this is taken from the UK CAA ANO - it merely stipulates that the operator must be able to see the drone and makes no reference to spotters. Goggles will therefore be considered a visual aid and breaks direct, visual contact of the drone so my interpretation is that they are indeed illegal when operating a drone for recreational use in UK airspace.

Technically I've been hearing no not legal without a spotter.
Whenever we fly with Goggles a spotter must be used.

Yes that's on pair with what I have been told here.
If spotters are legal then Goggles are also.
