Then I think we'll just have to have a difference of opinion.RonK wrote:trailgumby wrote:If you are looking where you are riding, and relying on a homing device for it to follow you, you are not doing that.
That may be your interpretation, but it is not mine.
Unfortunately the link to the actual legislation from the page you linked isn't returning a result at the moment, but the rest of the page states:
CASA wrote:You should only fly in visual line-of-sight, in day visual meteorological conditions (VMC). What does that mean?
No night flying (generally).
No flying in or through cloud or fog, and you should.
Be able to see the aircraft with your own eyes (rather than through first-person-view [FPV, binoculars, telescopes]) at all times, (unless you operate under the procedures of an approved model flying association. Contact the MAAA for more information about flying FPV).
The only exception is flying in FPV under the rules of the Model Aeronautical Association of Australia, of which I used to be a member at one time. Relying on a homing device is not First Person View and while you are riding and it is following you, you are not seeing the aircraft with your own eyes. I don't see much room for alternative interpretations there.
Good luck. I hope I'm wrong.
