What is the maximum ceiling height for the Matterport dollhouse view?10023

I'm sure this will have been asked before, however I am going to ask it anyway as I am a Newbie.
Can anybody tell me if there is a maximum height that a Pro 2 camera can scan ?
For instance, what would happen if I tried to capture a church or similar building with very high ceilings?

Matterport scan data is usually good for about 1.5 stories.

In this church (above) that I scanned with a Matterport Pro1 3D Camera in March 2015, the dollhouse view looks great.

You can amp-up the experience, if necessary, using a super-tall tripod (and likely hide these scans in Matterport Workshop 3.0.

Please see this related WGAN Forum discussion:

Question of the Day: Whom has the tallest Tripod (and Why)?

If you were shooting an arena, you could create a great dollhouse viewing with Leica GeoSystems BLK360 + Matterport.

Please do share your Matterport 3D Tour of the church, once scanned.

This one will get you to 24 feet for around $450 incl tax and freight,
✓ And, for about $750, this one will get you to 27.5 feet,

I bought a tripod that has an 8 foot footprint, which holds a large 2-1/2" O.D. telescoping mast (2-1/2" base, total 6 sections w/top one at 1", typically used for temporary antenna installations for HAM operators, or other radio uses, which extends to 38 feet for about $450, including tax and freight. This solution is best used by two people. My specific application was to do elevated photography, but avoid the need for a drone. This equipment can be seen at
