Yeah and use those saved hours to practice with a steadicam because people seem to forget you can't just pick it up and be instantly good with it.

It all depends what budget you have. In US low paying job will let you save for glidecam in a week, but in some countries you will make that much in a month...

This tutorial seems to be lacking one thing...
ANY kind of simplicity.
