It does look good! Looks easy to assemble and the price $188 not bad considering that includes the controller board.

Currently, yes, it is Martinz board.
We preset the PID to the level that you can use it out of box with appropriate CG adjustment.

and YES, we leave enough spacing from the side to attach 90deg cable for FPVers

one of our dealer has these in stock

Why does everyone design these things with the tilt motor covering the access ports on the gopro? If you'd just design it the other way around, you would never have to remove your camera... ?

It keeps the lens closer to center, otherwise it would be much farther to the right to get it balanced.

Which controller? The gimbal controller is controlling the pitch and roll. You can also control your tilt and roll from the transmitter via the RC receiver.
