Actually, the CT doesn't look like the monster truck it is being described as. The Model X isn't a huge car. Even with the camera angle the CT doesn't appear to be that much taller than the X, which makes me happy. I wish someone would do a Lidar scan on the CT or at least get a photo of it next to something that we know the height of. I have an old 3D drawing of the CT that needs to be updated.
ive got some really amazing enterprise class drones with LIDAR payloads on them.
Once one arrives im happy to provide that information

What the hell is funny Crissa?

sigh... what's wrong with shooting videos horizontally? I get that "it depends on the intended form factor" is an excuse for making crappy videos but I think it's just laziness. This video wasn't that bad but some can't even seem to get the whole truck in frame. I mean, how do you even film something like that without thinking "Man, I should zoom out or maybe film horizontally."?

You know who you are. LOL, but sadly.

The Petersen's automotive showing would have been a fantastic time to use a handheld LIDAR device. New iPhone Pro's have LIDAR and they would be better than nothing. Even the Measure app in iOS can measure things in a photo as long as all the EXIF data is still attached to the photo. Photos to measure need to be shot as close to perpendicular to each side as possible. Your drone could handle the top view, providing measurements that corroborate the side view measurements.

Good luck on trying your drone out. Not sure how the stainless steel body will handle LIDAR but there are enough panel gaps and edges that might make it possible.

If anyone has a side view of a recent CT, please post the original with EXIF data so the various measurement apps can use the focal length of the shot to properly calculate the distance measured.

Well, while driving it’s kinda hard to split that much focus. But I wish it were horizontal too.

True. I'll give you that. I suppose reverting to what you always do makes sense in that case. I always shoot video horizontally... I'm not all up on that Ticking Tock and The Face Book.

You do know that Twitter and forums...


... are social media?
As the word “however” implies, the exception.

And I’m not posting my life. But simply the life work of many talented engineers in the Palo Alto area ha
