Does anyone have any real experience with HTC Vive Base Stations (aka Lighthouses) being placed 10 feet above the floor? Of course I am going to place these on diagonal corners and they will be 14' from each other. Power is available at this elevation so that won't be a problem, either. This is higher than most people mount them. Has anyone done this? Are any problems encountered?

No real problems. Higher is better as it will be able to see more of your hands in various positions.
Pretty much, they need to be placed higher than your hand fully extended above your head holding a controller.

If you are 8.5ft tall, 10 ft may not be enough there Shaq. :)
