VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — Some customers in Virginia Beach can now order an item from their phone and have it delivered right out of the sky to their home.
Those living within a mile of these participating Walmart stores can place orders through DroneUp.
The following locations are participants:

Drones can deliver more than 10,000 eligible Walmart items up to ten pounds, including fragile items like eggs, in as little as 30 minutes.
