Dont forget all the manned aircraft falling from the skies as a result of drone hits.....

A frisbee, or golfball, or large Kite could cause damage to a manned aircraft. Has there been a new study that shows a sUAS doing catastrophic damage worse than a bird hit of equal size?

IIRC you and I had this conversation a few months back re:Mooney Wing/Drone Impact and we couldn't agree then either.

I think it's better if we just agree to disagree and leave it at that.

From a person that has been in "tornado ally" for over 50 years, the straw does not get "driven" into anything, The high winds twist and bend trees and poles opening cracks and allowing gras andd stuff to get trapped in them when the wind dies down and the tree/pole returns to its normal state.
That being said, being exposed to winds over 100 MPH is not fun for sure! Ever had a grasshopper hit you while riding a motorcycle at 75MPH?
Yes. Try a bird. UGH!
