FAA Part 333 question

FAA Part 333 requires the UAV operator or his spotter to maintain line of sight of the aircraft. Other than creating several smaller missions, how would you recommend being compliant with this requirement when doing large areas (I.e. 800 acre field).?

800 acres is going to require multiple flights anyway so you are probably best off choosing takeoff locations that will allow you to maintain line of sight. Maintaining a strong signal between your mobile device and the aircraft is another consideration and real world ranges will vary greatly from the ones specified by the drone manufacturer.
