Default Demon or Gpro FBL units - Servo Direction

I have both the Demon and Gpro FBL units. Does the stick direction matter in the initial setup. Like when you move the stick to the right does the FBL software have to show it's moving to the right.
The only way I could get on heli I have to work is by having them all backwards. Like the rudder shows the stick movement to the left when the stick is to the right. I had to do this to get the proper gyro compensation direction. Does it really matter if they are backward as long as they work. or will it cause problems.

It doesnt matter, as long as the swashplate moves to the left when you give left stick and to the right when you tilt the heli left.

If you set the endpoint for say left stick movement does that end up being the end point for the right stick movement if the software is showing it backwards. That's where I got confused.

Play with it, you will see whats going on. Drastically reduce the end point and you will see which way its effecting the throw. Bottom line, your transmitter doesn't know which is left and which is right, if you setup your servo and move the arm to the other side of the servo output it will reverse the surface but the radio will still say left or whatever. Just don't try over thinking it
