Doug,

the tail boom of the gyro is more or less horizontal in level flight, which means that the top of the rotor mast is then tilted 8 backwards.

I've chosen -8 as a minimum (small "m") hang angle, because I can tilt the rotor disk 8 backwards when pulling full elevator. This means that the thrust vector of the rotor will then move 8 forwards and just touch the cg. A hang angle of -10 should add a bit of stability in this situation.
