Please, read about lens nodal point and the importance when doing panos.
CG is good for mechanics, but turning the camera around nodal point is better optical to minimize parallax distortion.
Fortunately, they are very close, under 1cm for a standard lens, just a coincidence.

First, it's not CF, it's GF. Wrong description, but no one cares on GLB ;-)
(also available without servos for cheaper - add few bucks and get free shipping).

Another problem - it's not rigid. Original Cinestar gimbal ir light and strong, it does not vibrate a lot, in other words - works OK. This one is flexible. No CF tubes to reinforce (everything done in GF sheets, they have slop), etc.

I have enough "cheap" gimbals, but most of them are complete trash. Your gimbal is OK maybe for servos and belts, forget everything else.

OK Folks,
Finally I got it. Not yet flight tested (still building my heavy lifter for it). Just put together briefly and tested it with a servo tester.... I admit that I never has a real CS gimbal but I tried to find as many pictures on the net as possible and comparied them to this baby.... I do not see any significant differences. I even find a photo of the internals of a FF servo gears, and striped down one of the rctimer servos that come with the gimbal. It was identical (however I have no clues about the gear materials). All servos are working smoothly, all ball bearings are in place. The pots are exaclty the same BURNS pots that CS uses.. (22usd ath mouser )
Here are some coloseups...
