Most of them carry tiny little video cameras weighing a few tens of grammes with the structural properties of a deep-fried mars bar.
You mean the type of go-pro camera that penetrated Schumacher's helmet causing severe head injury?

You really believe that minor metallic items ingested into an engine cannot lead to FOD?

Remember an engine doesn't have to suffer a failure to lead to major risks; just engine vibration led to the Kegworth air crash due to several holes in the cheese lining up.
