So what will be actually sold?.. only the controller itself? or also rewound motors?
Perhaps a complete kit that just has to be assembled and tuned?

This is my idea for DSLR gimbal


The motor is a bit smaller than motor clamp so I have to hold it with hand
DSLR gimbal for brushless - axis (0 min 39 sec)

what do you think? any idea for slip-ring?
how big have to be the wires for a DSLR gimbal motor?

With two brushless motors in it, lightness is not going to happen.
The motors have to be strong (read: heavy) enough to get the job done; you could make the frame out of vapor and the gimbal will still be heavy.

Having weight to the gimbal is not a bad thing... as more mass, less vibration...

I guess mine is a pig gimbal. Good part is it will fit a Nex5 and even my Rebel XT.

I have been tunning it with a gopro, it's the best stabilizing I've seen vs Servos.

IMHO it's just adding weight + maybe helps a tiny bit with cooling, but that's not going to be an issue with GoPro...

Or is that just a way to justify the price?

...
My point of view is more simple: "less weight" more "flight time".
You should get rid of the vibration before, during the design, when you choose your brushless and your propellers.
