    That looks like the same one I have Woody. Mine weighs 200 grams and I'm swapping it out for the plastic Walkera because it's much lighter.
    According to that ad, it weighs in at 230 grams. That's one seriously heavy gimbal.

    I just looked at the Walkera on eBay and I don't think it works with a GoPro Hero 2, that's why I was looking at the CNC. Please let me know how your new gimbal works out for you.

    I had that gimbal, and it worked alright. It would pitch up if I accelerated too quickly or made small adjustments in a hover. I tried to use the Alexmos bcg software but the gimbal controller is a Chinese copy of an Alexmos board, and not compatible with the software. If you buy one of those make sure it's compatible with the Alexmos software, as the Chinese one does not have its own version of the assistant software. I use mine on a stick now as a handheld Gopro gimbal
