This is actually a surprise to me that they would allow that much leway. But it's just like a normal airplane...you want it a little nose heavy for the maiden flight. I would go 8-10 degrees.

If you have questions about throws or anything, let me know. Did you buy this autogyro already built or built it yourself?
I built it myself. Just having trouble knowing the correct hang angle. No good way to measure. Mark posted a measurement at the tail with the firewall almost on a flat surface but it is useless with the landing gear attached. Not quite sure what that meant. He hung it by the pivot wire but I don't see a good way to do that unless I insert a longer new wire at the pivot to tie off on without hitting the rotor hub. Look at the above pic.
