    I had a play with using photoscan to make a track model from youtube vids. Photoscan also has a 30 day trial.

    <edit> drone deploy looks made for the job
    </edit>

    Photos looking straight down from a constant altitude would work best. Also in order to automatically stitch them together they need to overlap. I would guess that would apply to any software. The manual suggests that a feature should appear in three photos. So the closer to the ground the drone is the more photos will be needed. But of course the higher the drone is the lower the detail captured. Probably a height to capture the width of the tracl and 2m on either side would be a good start.

    @ArcusProduction had a look at the videos. They are very good for reference. Especially the pit area, I can model the pit building with no problems now. Also good for placing of some other objects.

    @luchian thank you very much for your help. Unfortunately I encounter a problem yesterday when I installed the new update for the drone. The camera doesn't transmit a live image anymore...it's just a black screen.

    I've reseted to factory setting and instaled the updates a few times, but the problem is still there. The only thing left to do now, is to send it in for service repairs and unthil then I will have to postpone any activity with it.
    It's verry disapointing...

    Well, it's not like this is an emergency :). Like with every mod, it will advance as fast as we can get good data for it. For the moment there is something already, modelling all the objects.
    Furthermore, we might get plans from the circuit, right ?

    Good luck with the drone, hope you will keep the motivation until you get it back in working mode.

    Got'em, thank you. I'll have a look in the evening after work, but from the pdf they seem to be what I'd need :).

    Looking forward for the scaled version. This one has too many elevation changes. The track is just bumpy, it doesn't have eleavtions

    The plans from @ArcusProduction are looking good, will work with them the following days to see if we can nail the track layout. For elevations, no problems, it's easy to scale everything down on Z so that it becomes almost flat. As I understood, max elevation difference for the track is 2m, so on the scale of the track and as visible on a PC screen, that's basically neglectable. Will use this as a reference, but in DWG.

    Wow, only 2m altitude :) It must be flattest circuit in the world. Perhaps even more than Poznan :D

    In one of my tracks there were ~5m drop in about 400m straight, it is almost imposible to notice.
