Wouldn't the ballistics data be skewed from having to refer to his eyes which are meters away? And would the rigger even be able to see this data?
What this sounds like (and how I would run it) is you're trying to use your rigger's eyes as a channel for a TacNet, which would be totally feasible (as long as the rigger's eyes are open).
People forget that Smartlinked guns have a camera and that's where the data comes from. I think it would be no different than if he pointed the gun around a corner and fired.
I always get confused why people think you need a camera on a drone to use a smartgun. The smartgun has a camera, you need the drone to have a smartlink and a smartgun.
My question was more about controlling the turret on the drone while using a smartlink.

Smartgun System: The smartgun system connects a firearm or projectile weapon directly to a user’s smartlink (p. 333). It incorporates a laser range finder and a small camera, and keeps track of ammunition, heat buildup, and material stress. It allows a smartlinked character to mentally switch between gun modes, eject clips, and fire the gun without pulling the trigger. The camera allows for targeted shooting around corners, without exposing oneself to return fire.
