Rich,

as the motor position of a pusher is higher than that of a tractor, it's better to use a tricycle configuration. You don't have to worry about the gyro toppling over.

My Minimum and Nanomum have the horizontal stab more or less directly in the prop wash, on the Micromum the position is very much lower. All of them fly. Just build something that looks sensible to you.

You haven't mentioned your rotor diameter yet, so it's hard to tell about the weight of your gyro.
