My board is only a 2 axis so I will have to start with that

EcksYZ, sounds a bit sesame street.

How about just ecks-axis

You could play around with variants of the Dos Equis (XX) beer brand:

Dos Axis
Dos Axes (axes is plural for both axis and axe.)
Dos Eckses

There's also a Tres Equis (XXX) brand, for when you decide to come out with a three-axis gimbal.

Just tested the gimbal with a panasonic GH3, works perfectly, and this is a heavy camera at 1.2kg

This is awesome! I'm thinking of upgrading to a GH3. This makes it easy.

Hi Cam, is this meant for your big octo? Or any other frame that can carry this weight? Looks good mate

Allow me to be the voice of reason for a moment Cam.

It's not whether the gimbal can move a camera of that weight... but for how long it can handle the weight. Weeks? months? Maybe put a dummy weight on the gimbal and a constant power source and let it run 24/7 and see how many hours the motors will last.. that will give you an idea of recommended weight and warranty period

You'll have to work out a method to rock n roll the gimbal

Okay, connecting to a constant power source is easy, the rock and roll bit sounds harder. Maybe if I trap a small animal and fasten the sensor to its back?

This one is for my hexa, but I will be altering the top arm to connect with a vibration dampener for any other machine.

(I was joking about the small animal )

If you were in Texas you could strap it to the side of an oil field pump.
