Indislider- putting tripod head on top of it?

Just got the 24" indislider. I really like it for the price. Works very well with my Canon 7D.

Has anyone tried to attach a tripod head to the inslider itself? I was thinking it would be great to tilt the inslider up and down, and have the camera be able to tilt independent of the inslider. I have an old Sanford and Davis FM 18 head I can use. Looking at the screws that attach everything together, I think I can make it work, but I'm wondering if anyone has already done it.

I've been wondering the same thing, as I already have a ball pistol grip for still photography. Found this picture from someone on flicker

which looks to confirm that you can use your own tripod head.
