Engineer at Play

Kevin's mom went on a childhood toy binge at Five Below before leaving for vacation.  I can imagine what happened.  She went in with plans to get decorations for Mr. Ulmes' surprise 60th birthday party (which was a huge hit), and got swept up by bargain and nostalgia, walking away with water guns, Silly Putty, jacks, and model airplanes.  I tried to put my model airplane together for approximately 9.2 seconds before declaring that the boys were welcome to use it for spare parts or tricking out their own planes.

Kevin test flew his plane indoors (a big no no!)

Ok, I'm really embarrassed that I ended up shooting it sideways, but can't for the life of me figure out how to turn it.  Any suggestions?


  1. I am guessing that the orientation is decided at the time you hit "record". You need to turn the camera, then hit record, and then keep recording in that orientation. (I know this is true for when recording with the iPhone.)

  2. Yeah, I recorded on an iPhone and did exactly that. I just wish there was a way I could flip the video without major hassle.

  3. Use Kevin's iPhone to record the video off while replaying it on your iPhone :)

  4. I've done that before. You can change the orientation using the Windows Live Movie Maker. It's the best whoops-fixer.


What do you think?
