Default Follower arm need to be level, 90 degrees?

Bought a used 270. While adjusting pitch noticed that at neutral zero degrees the follower arm is not parallel to the ground, not 90 degrees to main shaft. On the Blade 450x it specifically states the follower arm has to be level at zero degrees, there is an actual dimension for the height of swatch to be. Since the 270 is a blade product with a follower arm should the 270 be level also? The swashplate looks really high if you set it so follower arm is level, perpendicular to the swash. Very close to binding on swash. Would think 360 cfx would be similar also. Does it matter....

I've been flying the 270cfx for almost 2 years.I haven't really notice this. For me, what I care is that at mid stick of the throttle stick, the main blade is at zero degrees
