Glidecam v16 vs indicam ?

Wondering if anyone has used them both with a camera weighing in around 8-13lbs? Is that too light for the glidecam? is it verging on too heavy for a single upgraded arm of the indicam? I eliminated the smoothshooter since it only goes to 10lbs, and am looking at the indicam single upgraded arm which goes to 14lbs.

Can the glidecam work a very small camera like an HV20? as well or would you need the extra weight and if so would an XHA1 with firestore and wireless mic receiver only be too light?

Is it worth the extra price for mainly an XHA1 and at most an XLH1 with a few small accessories(firestore, mic receiver, LED light without battery) ?

Thanks.
