    Wasn't there a post where the doors had an issue opening when the car wasn't level? I'm not sure the motors able to handle too much extra weight....

    The X will tell you on the display to press and hold for so many seconds.

    Falcon Wing Door Calibration

    Take the vehicle outdoors where there’s nothing in range of the FWD (and probably no overhead cache - that is, the display allows you to fully open the doors on one touch.) Hold the physical door switch inside the vehicle until door is all the way open. Next, hold the physical door switch down until the door is all the way closed. The door should be recalibrated at this point.

    At the very least, I wish that ball were larger and red to stand out more.
