I wonder how the drone operator kept the drone in sight during the entire filming?

Doesn't have to. The operator of the drone has a video feed from the drone.

The Federal Aviation Administration regulations require that the pilot of a drone must keep the drone in plain sight without the use of any aids, such as binoculars or a video feed. There are substantial civil penalties for violations.
