You may hear a buzz in the air soon within a mile of 11 Dallas-area Walmart stores, but it's not the sound of an early electric Santa sleigh. It's another sign that commercial drones are becoming more and more a part of our daily lives. The big-box giant has expanded its drone delivery partnership with DroneUp into Texas.
For a $3.99 delivery fee, customers within a mile of each store can order packages and see them drop gently to their yard or driveway on the same day.
