This is my first post here so if this has been covered (I couldn't find it) then let me apologize up front.

I read this article today https://corporate.walmart.com/newsroom/2020/09/09/walmart-now-piloting-on-demand-drone-delivery-with-flytrex  and the thing that stands out to me is the comment about deliveries being made up to 3.5 miles. I am finishing up my certification training and it clearly states that line-of-sight must be maintained.  I can see pretty well but 3.5 miles is a stretch to see a drone.  I don't even think a waiver relieves a remote pilot from assuring the drone isn't entering the flight path of another aircraft. There is an 11 second clip in the article which "simulates" delivery.

Thoughts?
