More Logical to Ban Footballs or Foamy Planes from a Park?

A quick look at the typical energy stored in various balls which get used in a park environment and

comparing that to the energy stored in an RC foam plane.

Now, the damage or 'ouch factor' that might be experienced by someone, when in collision with any of these objects, is related to the

amount of energy stored in them.

So, take a look at what a football's energy might be and Wow! you don't want to be anywhere near a cricket ball.

But the foamy plane - is a collision with that going to hurt as much as the football, or more like being hit by a cricket ball?
