Concerning the flapping angle, it can be calculated from the quotient tip speed/gyro speed. I looked it up yesterday in a very good book on gyros (in German: Flugphysik der Tragschrauber, [can be found in https://b-ok.cc/]). I've transcribed here the expression for that and for other angles, since I believe there are some people here who may be interested.
