AO-40 with a single rotor

Image link: the next 40 sky paths of AO-40 at my location.

If I am only planning on running AO-40, is there any reason why I
couldn't use a single rotor, tilted (in my case and location) about 45
deg, so that the rotation plane follows the orbit (since the usable
portion follows within a 4-5 deg window of elevation)?
