Rudder feedback sensor mount upside down

Does anyone know whether you can mount the rudder feedback sensor RF25N from B&G upside down. I couldn't find anything in the documentation. And being able to mount it inverter may save me some significant fabrication.

Yes. It will compensate during calibration.

As Smac said, you can change the port/starboard directions during AP setup, just don't mount it facing backwards or it won't work (don't ask me how I know this!).

Combination of upside down and backwards should give you the original orientation, no?

There is no such thing as original orientation. Rudder direction is set via software in new pilots and via swapping wires on older pilots. It can go anyway.
