  4. You can only fly one drone at a time
  5. You can only fly the drone during the day
  6. Your drone must be within your line of sight at all times
  7. You must not fly over or above people (eg at a busy park or beach, at a sporting event)

CASA will not investigate any complaints about invasion of privacy.
