Most sprayers look like they are designed for horizontal use. Does anyone have overhead experience with them?

An airless sprayer that pumps the paint through a hose to a nozzle won't care what direction it is spraying. The ones with a paint cup may run into challenges when the paint in the cup is below a half a cup depending on which way the pick up lays. You may be able to bend the pick-up hose so it is pulling from the part of the cup facing down when spraying up.
