When sailing radio controlled boats under Appendix E and a protect is lodged:
1. Can a witness be heard that was not in the control area at the time (but was in fact much closer with a better view than any skipper or member of the RC)? EDIT: Answer is No, see E6.8.
2. Can the protest committee use a video of the event shot with a good zoom, far better than any skipper could see?
3. Can the video have been shot from outside the control area?
As far as I can tell, it's "yes" to all three questions... Appendix M7 allows videos. Appendix E does not seem to modify or invalidate M7. But does seem to go against E5.2.
