Default TREX 250 DFC 3GX mounting options

I would like to mount the 3GX on the side of the heli, not flat - upside down or right side up. But the 3GX manual shows no option for this mounting orientation. I wonder if it could be done, by swapping two of the axis like elevator for cyclic or pitch? I would think that if the gyro sensors and control algrithms are all identical, this would be possible. All I would do is wire TX RUD / PIT -> 3GX PIT / RUD. It might get a little confusing to do it this way, but I just know I am going to tinker around with this thing quite a bit and mounting on the side gives much easier access than in the frame. Has anybody tried this?

I think all I would lose is sensitivity rudder adjustment from the TX. It would be cool also if somebody wrote some firmware to support this orientation.
Those who know their history are doomed to repeat it.
