NO, I think you mean the thrust line needs to be below the center of mass.

If the thrust line was above the center of mass you are at high risk of the nose-over, "bunt" and mast bumping that has caused a lot of gyro crashes.

Are there any plans available to build a metal rotor for an autogyro because as I understand these are not included with the gyrobee or other plans built machines.Dont the gyroplanes have a stabilizing pendulum stability as in fixed wing aircraft or is it the other way round ?

Plans for quite a few gyros are available but non for the Rotors. The rotors are a bit of mystery like the propeller so not many amateur builders even attempt to build one.
