Thanks for the report!
I have the Skywatcher HEQ5 = Sirius. But non-goto version. So my hand-paddle only have slow-mo buttons.
I find it very stable and sturdy, and it works well.
I can carry it out with my scope and counterweights on, saves lots of time.
My only gripe is the lack of polarscope illumination on my model, but this seems to have been added in later models. And a bubble-level would be nice also... of course one can DIY this. Overall i'm happy with it.
