Backer Update #4.


Short update for now, but some very important developments over the past week!

First, though, we're getting ready to fulfil our perks, so this is your last reminder - if you have not received a perk survey yet you must let us know ASAP. If we don't have your information it will lead to delays and possible non-fulfillment. Please email me if you still require your perk survey: brentlessard@rloop.org . I have responded to all emails to date - if you have not heard back from me please send a follow up! For those who added items to their order, please check for a PayPal invoice from us for those extra items!

Some of the items are exclusive to the campaign and will not be available again, and all are at a discount to what they will retail for. As always, 100% of contributions are used to support the design and manufacturing of the rLoop Hyperloop Pod!

Pressure Vessel + Substructure


This past weekend we had a 'dry fit' of our pressure vessel and substructure. The existing skin seen on the pressure vessel is the bottom of the rPod. To ease the installation of the non-vacuum compliant components, the remainder of the skin will be attached at a later time. The hover engines and their gimbal system, along with the lateral alignment system and the eddy current brakes, will be mounted to the substructure. Very exciting to see these structural components mate so well together, and really start to visualize the final rPod. Images below:

Hover Engines


Speaking of hover engines, the names for all the engines have been submitted! Thanks to our monumental contributors who quickly snapped up those perks! In our next few updates we'll be introducing you to all of our hover engines! The names of these engines will be referred to in all our official documentation for the rPod, be featured on our social media channels, and will be written on the engines themselves. Stay tuned for that!

Aeroshell Nosecone


Progress continues on the mould for the nosecone of our aeroshell. Progress images below:
Thank you again for contributing to the rLoop team. Please make sure you have submitted your perk survey! If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for the team you can always reach out to us: contact@rloop.org. You can follow us on the social media links below for daily updates, but we'll continue to provide exclusive content to our backers via email. 

To a better tomorrow!
