Yes, it can! Nanos have servo reversing and center offsets too.

RFU antennas

DO NOT separate the two antenna leads at the RFU itself and DO NOT remove the RFU from its case.

I am not quite clear on the above in red, taken from the RFU installation portion of the manual. Does it mean to not bend them right at the circuit board or to just flex them to the desired position? A picture of a typical installation would be helpful. I do understand that the white part needs to remain straight but would point 90 deg of each other for best reception.

This means do not move antenna LEADS (not the antennas). We had some people removing the case and turning one antenna lead 90 degrees to the other - don't do that!

You can certainly bend the antenna leads so the antennas themselves (which is just the white tip of each antenna lead) are perpendicular (90 degrees) to each other.

Oh!. That explains it. Thanks

Just a reminder for those using the RFU or Nano with the X10+.... the weight of cable between the X10+ and Nano or RFU is extremely heavy under high g-force loading and prone to "ripping" out of the receiver connection. MAKE SURE that you zip tie the cable and/or connector so that it can't pull out of the receiver (or X10+).
