* Let me make it clear, the creator of this Steadicam Style frame is one of my hobbyist friend. I do get involved of some improvement suggestions to him. All the multicopter frames you see(not many, except this Steadicam Style frame) in my shopping cart, they were designed and made by our own people included me, we are a group of RC hobbyist that love to design and make our own frame. Dividesign is my RCG ID, I am also the person introduce them to the RCgroups.

Looks pretty cool, I was trying to see if I could rig one of these Lensse Midpro Steady Camera Stabilizers to my DJI F550 but your thing looks way nicer.

I have the Ecliop and love it. This setup looks amazing, but a couple of things to note:
1- Please make sure the landing gear is very strong and rigged. Nothing worse than flimsy plastic, and with this type of setup if it fails there will be a lot of expensive damage. Its worth the extra weight.
2- Make sure the there is a wide range of movement for the battery holder. The Ecilop is limited here.
3- Please use good quality bearings on the steady cam mechanics, and make it so that they can be interchanged regularly,
4- Pan axis would be a welcome addition!
5- If you are using a spring system to control the axis's then it needs to work in a way that it does not load up the servo gears to one side, like the ecilop does. I can see myself needing new gear sets regularly with this setup..
Look forward to finding out more on this hex!
