The Large-Area Picosecond Photo-Detector (LAPPD$^\text{TM}$) is a planar, 20 $\times$ 20 cm$^2$ photo-tube that is being developed for sub-pico second timing resolution and large area detector coverage. The first generation LAPPD$^\text{TM}$ uses transmission line anode strips to carry amplified signals from the inside of the vacuum-tube to external electronics. A second generation design has been proposed to improve spatial resolution and to allow operation in high event rate environments. The *Inside-Out* LAPPD uses an internal (inside) ground plane that capacitively couples to an external (outside) anode for electrical readout. Measurements of the Inside-Out detector's analog bandwidth and position reconstruction capabilities provide a comparison to the first generation LAPPD$^{\text{TM}}$
