My RC Pusher Autogyro designs

Well my PT25 is basically finished and I just cant afford to press on with my Large DAG right now.
I needed a new project to keep my mind active during these cold winters evenings and I have been really impressed with Peter O's latest creation so I thought I would have a go at my own pusher gyro.
I cant buy any materials at the moment so I have had to use what I have in my workshop which is basically balsa and ply. I have DAG blades, an electric motor,esc and batteries so it has been roughly designed around these. My thoughts are if I can build a pusher with an AUW lighter than my R2 then there is no reason why it shouldnt fly??
The only trouble is I have never built, flown or even seen a pusher autogyro fly so I am totally in the dark with this subject.
I know there are experts out there so I am calling on you guys to point me in the right direction if you wouldnt mind please
Things like thrust lines, hang angles, mast heights,motor heights etc, etc,etc

Heres a few photos of what I have done in a few evenings..if you see that I have gone about something the wrong way please tell me I wont be offended.
Your thoughts and ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Regards Rich

PS thanks for the photo Peter
