1 KG or 2.2 pounds? Wow that is a lot of weight to be moving around on a pole that could be 12 or 15 feet above the ground. Not sure I would want to be handling a camera that weighed that much on the ground much less up in the air. I think the mount is plenty strong to handle the weight of say a digital 35mm camera or a small video camera. Anything larger than that would be difficult to control if there were a good breeze blowing on the day you are shooting. A safety line would be an idea along with a platform below the mount so that you could rest the camera and pole assembly on the ground and not have the camera touch the ground. All good ideas for the next version.
As far as hitting something with your camera up in the air that is a possibility that no one would want to happen. But it does and that is a risk you take when you put a camera up in the air on anything be it a pole or balloon or RC helicopter. Another risk if you do use a long pole is the possibility of hitting a power line with your camera. Advise anyone using this mount to use a non conductive pole to avoid that type of danger. Would make for a VERY bad day.
