Using a Gimbal with a Superzoom Camera?

I'm wondering if anyone here has experience using a 3-axis, motorized gimbal with a superzoom camera. It would seem to be problematic with the long and heavy lens, that would shift the balance as it went in and out. It might require readjustment for each different zoom setting.  There are a multitude of different models and price ranges available, but mostly for smartphones or small action cameras. Some expensive models are designed for larger cameras, but not many for the 2.5 to 3.5-lb. camera size.
