What are the advantages/disadvantages to get a Quark from a 3 axis gimbal?

-We have developed the Quark to solve problems we had using 3 axis gimbal :

Mounting :

The Quark weight and measure a fraction of a 3 axis gimbal, which allow you to mount it everywhere and it doesn't bother you on a helmet.

Carrying :

You can leave it attached to your camera all the time and store it like that, it removes the pain of carrying a big stabilizer and spending time installing and removing your GoPro from it so you can spend more time shooting and having fun.

Durability :

Its low profile and few moving parts make it way stronger that a 3 axis gimbal, plus we are using a high strength plastic used normally in guns manufacturing.
