Default GY401 physical alignment on heli

I was looking over my 450 the other day (never flown before, first heli) and I noticed I stuck the 401 on about one or two degrees off from alignment of the tail. This is if you're looking from the top down, the gyro is rotated very slightly from being even with the rest of heli. The gyro is mounted upside down on the bottom of the default mounting location. Should I pull the gyro off and have the sides dead parallel with the tail, or is it ok how it is? I can post pics later if needed, but this is just a general question.

The gyro only has to be in plane with the frame, you can twist it to any angle you want.
