I've had my flycam since last fall and love it. Zero issues with it so far. Not the best buid quality but if you take care of it it's good. Balancing at fist is a pain but once you get it down its pretty easy, plus with a qr you dont even need to rebalance.
If you can find a glidecam on ebay or somewhere for only a little more though that'd probably be a better option
