Flycam Nano - would this work for me?

So I've been looking at the Flycam Nano and am very impressed with it. I realize it has to be properly balanced and such to work at it's best.

Now, I have a Sony HDR-CX500 camcorder. All of the reviews I've seen for the Flycam are using DSLRs. The weight limit says it can hold like 4 lbs or something, but the weight of my camcorder would only be around 2. So my question is: Would this still work ok with the Sony cam? I'd just remove some of the counterweights on the bottom stabilizer, correct? ?

Thank you for the help! It just seems weird in all the reviews that no one seems to use this for an actual video camcorder. If anyone owns this and has other comments, please feel free to post.

EDIT: I went ahead and ordered this. I'm pretty sure it will work. :)

A friend of mine has one of those and he swears by it! I think you'll be happy once you get it all set up for your camera's balance.

Thanks both of you! Yeah, it is HELL to calibrate! Oh man, but definitely sweet once it's set up. I can get shots like never before.
