Well.. If you look at this from a price standpoint, it only has to have 1/3 the performance of a Z-15 to be equal.
And realistically I think we can expect performance very close to the Z-15 from a well tuned system. Simply because a mechanical weight based system with infinite pitch/tilt resolution is much more elegant in it's simplicity. And when used together with electronics to compensate for those cases where a weight based systems alone would fail (because of centripetal forces in certain high speed maneuvers), you should get very good results.
Personally I'll jump the ship when/if they release a hexa or octa version. I'm not comfortable with using a quad to lift expensive camera equipment.
