I wonder how the pivot system handles the genoa pushing on it every tack.
Also, the pivot system is likely to weigh more than a fixed installation, and that's top-weight. It's more complex and so more likely to fail, particularly the bit of cable that bridges the pivot.
Finally, marine radar's do not suffer too much from moderate heel angles and when they are seriously needed, one is advised to reduce speed and hence heel angle.
