sweating joint close to floor

I have to sweat a joint that's about 7" off the floor. This will put the propane torch on a 15 to 20 degree angle. Is that too low for propane handhelds?? I've heard they flare up sometimes if held close to horizontal.

The Bernzomatic TS3000 or TS4000 torches available at the box stores have pressure regulators that allow the torches to burn upside down without flaring up. 7" off the floor sounds like no problem to solder.
