Radio control boats compared to other RC models

With hobby-quality radio control boats, sometimes referred to as remote control boats, you can do most of the same things that you can do with RC cars. You can run them for fun, race them, admire their scale looks, and add option parts to increase their performance.

The main difference is that you don’t run your RC boat on land. That’s what makes them so popular and exciting. Picture yourself at the lake on a sunny afternoon, racing your remote control boat through the shimmering water with a broad wake and tall rooster tail behind it. Or maybe you'd prefer to gently glide along with a remote control sailboat. There’s nothing else in the RC hobby like it.

The only special requirement is that you need a body of water large enough for the RC marine model you own, without strong currents and relatively free of limbs, grasses, and other obstacles that could snag it. If your RC boat does get stuck away from shore or runs out of power in the middle of the lake, you may need access to a jon boat or other safe way to retrieve it.

Otherwise, piloting your own RC boat is as easy as driving an RC car. And just like RC cars, radio control boats are available in a wide range of styles, sizes, skill levels, completion levels, and prices. Horizon Hobby® has one that’s perfect for every interested hobbyist.

Types of RC boats

Radio control electric boats are available in many styles. Tunnel hull and hydroplane RC boats are among the fastest, with flat bottoms that skim across smooth water with little resistance when up to speed. For rougher conditions, the V-shaped hull of deep vee RC boats is best. Though not quite as fast, a deep vee can cut more easily through choppy water. Electric RC boats come in many sizes, including mini, which can be run in swimming pools or small ponds. The jet pump propelled Pro Boat® Jet Jam™ mini RC boat is a blast in water only three inches deep!

Powered by wind like their full-size counterparts, RC sailboats are great for beginners and economical, too. They provided unlimited run time as long as there’s a breeze. You might think of sailboats as elegant and leisurely paced, but there are also RC racing sailboats for modelers who crave speed.

Scale RC boats prioritize realism over speed. They still perform well, but their owners pay close attention to recreating the full-scale subjects accurately. The Dumas® Creole Queen scale steamboat kit features a motor-powered paddle wheel and includes three pages of decals.

RC airplane pilots can make an easy transition into boating with an RC airboat. These use the same power plants and propellers as RC aircraft. The engine mounts on a pedestal at the back of the boat and the force of the spinning prop pushes the boat across the water.

Remote control boats in kit form or ready-to-run (RTR

Like other categories of radio control models, RC boats can be purchased ready-to-run (RTR) with most or all accessories included, or as kits that usually require assembly, power systems, and radio equipment.

Many ready-to-run RC boat models have molded ABS plastic hulls and decks that are already joined at the factory. The motor and running hardware are usually also installed. RC boats with ABS hulls tend to be among the most affordable, but speed and performance are still impressive. With optional accessories, the Pro Boat Blackjack™ [link] with ABS hull can go 30 mph or more.

Factory-built RC boats are also available with preformed fiberglass hulls. Fiberglass boats are more expensive due to the amount of work required by the manufacturer (the reinforcing fiberglass material must be saturated with a liquid resin and then applied to the boat hull mold). This construction is usually found on high-performance RC boats like the Pro Boat UL-19 Hydroplane , whose speed can exceed 50 mph.

Scale RC boat kits often feature wooden hulls. Though among the least expensive boat models, wooden boat kits also require the most work to complete. Many wood planks must be fitted onto the hull framework and then finished with paint or resin to ensure the hull is watertight.

The RC boat you choose will determine what else you’ll need to buy. Most ready-to-run (RTR) RC boats available from Horizon Hobby include a 2-channel radio system, motor, and ESC. You might need to provide your own suitable battery pack and battery charger. Read the product descriptions to learn what is and is not included with the RC boat you’ve chosen, and for recommended completion items.

You’ll find that the internal design of a typical electric RC boat is pretty simple. The motor is located near the front of the boat. It’s connected to a drive shaft that runs toward the back of the boat and out through the bottom of the hull. The boat’s propeller is at the end of the shaft, submerged in the water. A servo-activated rudder positioned just behind the propeller enables you to steer.

RC boats often use water cooling to keep their motor and ESC from overheating. These components are wrapped with coils of aluminum tubing, and the coils are connected to a water pickup at the bottom of the hull. As the boat moves forward, water is forced into the pickup and through the coils to provide cooling.

The electronics used in RC boats are highly water-resistant, but the boat manufacturer may recommend additional steps to seal out water for additional protection. You should also be aware that most remote control boats should not be used in saltwater. Unlike freshwater, saltwater can cause rust and other damage to delicate electronic parts.

Large RC Boats

The large size RC boat category is where you’ll find the biggest, most jaw-dropping, high-speed radio control boats available in the Pro Boat lineup — or anywhere else, for that matter! What do we mean by large? Most of these RC boats are about three feet long, and some are even larger. Now close your eyes and picture a remote control boat with those dimensions blasting across the water at speeds of 55 mph or more, kicking up colossal rooster tails and absolutely dominating anything else on the lake. Whether you’re competing in large-scale racing or just running for fun, Pro Boat large size RC boats are the ultimate in pulse-pounding RC boating adventure!

Pro Boat large remote control boats deliver more than impressive size, performance, and style. These radio control boats score big on value as well. Take the Blackjack 8S, for example, with its three-and-a-half foot long, extremely durable, impact-resistant polycarbonate catamaran hull. Pro Boat matches the Blackjack’s mega size with an efficient, water-cooled brushless motor that’s capable of 5.3 horsepower and 55-plus mph speed. Plus, you get top-of-the-line Spektrum radio equipment with built-in telemetry, and much more. There’s no other RC boat available in this size that delivers so much power and performance, at such an affordable price.

Of course, almost every RC boat enthusiast dreams of sending a super-sized deep-V hull slicing across a lake, carving turns and soaking onlookers in a tidal wall of spray. Large size Pro Boat deep-V speed demons do just that, with spectacular style that’s like nothing else on the water. The incredible Pro Boat Impulse, with a multi-layered composite fiberglass hull, has a dynamic appearance that’s all its own — lean, sharp, and ready to make other boaters’ heads spin. Meanwhile, the fierce and fiery looks of the three-foot-long Sonicwake might also be just a little bit deceptive. Despite its 50-plus mph speed potential, the special self-righting capabilities of this large RC deep-V help make it suitable for beginners and avid model boaters alike.

The large Pro Boat RC boats you see on this page are among the fastest, most innovative, and most technically advanced marine models on the market today. They’ll amp up your excitement to eleven at your local lake, and do it without breaking the bank. All Pro Boat ready-to-run (RTR) large radio control boats arrive stunningly factory-finished and already equipped with the industry’s finest, state-of-the-art on-board electronics. In most cases, all that you’ll need to add is your favorite battery and charger before launching into big-time RC boating action!

RC Sailboats

Remote controlled sailboats use the natural wind for movement and the user controls the boats steering and positioning of sails with a radio transmitter. RC sailboats come in a wide variety of options, including electric motors, which can be valuable when the wind dies down or better maneuverability back to shore or to your boat.

FAQs About RC Sailboats

If you do not see your question, or an answer to it, listed below, get in touch with us and we’ll happily give you one!

How do RC Sailboats work?

RC Sailboats work through radio control, which is a given considering the “RC” in the name, and a bit of skill. You need to steer, draw the sail, etc. Interestingly enough, it’s a lot like sailing a real sailboat, but you’re using a controller to do it.

This is where the skill part comes in. Drawing the sails, for example, requires timing and precision to ensure that you’re doing it properly. If you don’t, you face it sinking, should the model be a very extensive one, or not sailing properly at all.


Where can I race a RC Sailboat?

You can race a RC Sailboat virtually anywhere. Although, racing in the ocean may not be the best idea if you’re very invested, both emotionally and financially, in your boat.

This is where lines come in. A lot of users will have a line system to ensure that if there is a crash and their boat sinks, or whatever the case may be, they can still retrieve their vessel without actually having to go into the water.

Are there are RC Sailboats that use wind?

Yes! Some RC Sailboats do not use electricity or a motor as a source to run. Some only work with windy weather, but still require a controller for steering, drawing the sails, etc.

What happens when the wind stops?

This is another instance where a tow line comes in handy. If the wind stops you have two options – wait for it to come back, or use your tow line to reel it back in. Some users have small tugboats that are able to go out and retrieve a RC Sailboat that has a downed sail, has stalled, etc.

What if it tips?

If your RC Sailboats tips, it’s obviously not a very good one. The good quality ones have something at the bottom to ensure this doesn’t happen unless it’s hit by another one, has a hole in the side, etc.

It may tip into the water from the wind or have the bow go under water, but it should not tip on its side completely in any instance other than one of the reasons previously mentioned.

If it does tip, reel it in using your tow line or go into the water and get it.

I would definitely go for K2 – manufactured by Sailboat RC company. That 1-metre hull beast won World AND European Championship, USA Nationals, Southern America Cup, Australian Nats…and all in 2017/2018 season!!

Check it out, it is outstanding piece of art really, a must have RC Sailboat.

Hej! Have you found something? I search for a rc sailboat that I can transport with my bicicle.

Hi Annette, I too am looking for a 1 meter or 3 foot sailboat. Had a “Tradewinds” that was 3 feet long and loved it! BUT, the 5 pound center board weight (I used BB’s) was hard to find…. Want to get one so it can be sailed in the pond/small lake outside. A friend got one too and we used to “race”. But, we had no buoys – there are usually two or three and depends on the size of the boat.

In the Chicago area, Wisconsin, Chicago, Indiana (Munster), Michigan, and Florida (about 20 miles from Orlando) – we were lucky and I was sailing anywhere from 13′ to 45′ boats. People that did not know me were freaked out when I could sail.

Another boat makes sense here. And, if I had two, then another person can sail too. And, I can make buoys that are needed to race boats. Hmm, that is a good idea.

' src=

I am a former professional licensed Captain, sailboat dealer and racer who is now landlocked. Looking to start RC sailing, but prefer to identify key class associations, publications and such information to make sure there is a strong RC class or one design to guide me. Looking forward to guidance first, then back on the water the right way.

RC Sailboats

An overview of radio controlled sail boats and a brief explanation of scale model sailboats, semi scale rc sport, and rc racing sailing yachts. kits, rtr and scratch built..

RC sailboats can be divided up in three main categories:

  • RC Sport Sail
  • RC Sailing Yachts (for racing)
  • RC Scale Sail

RC sport sail

Most kits and RTR (ready-to-run) model RC sail boats are best categorized as RC sport scale. This category is a happy medium between full-blown scale models and RC racing yachts.

Some have become so widely distributed that new racing classes has been formed around them. Good examples are Graupner's Micro Magic and Kyosho's Fairwind.

They are usually semi-scale of modern cruising yachts or made to resemble America’s cup sailboats.

The lower cost models come with ABS hulls, whereas the higher end models come with more durable fiberglass hulls. Drop keels, aluminum masts and Dacron sails are most common.

RC racing yachts

If you want to get into RC yacht racing there are a number of classes to choose from. Each country has a governing body ( American Model Yachting Association (AMYA) in the USA, Model Yachting Association in the UK) under the International Model Yacht Racing Union.

As with full size regattas, RC model yacht racing face some of the same issues. Entry rules for competitions typically follow depending on if the class is Open or Closed Design.

Open or Construction Class

What these classes have in common is that the boats are not identical - instead the rules are made up like a mathematical formula. The good thing that brings is that the challenge is three-fold – design, construction and sailing the course.

The disadvantage is in that the rules for some classes can be complicated. Some classes have gained in popularity precisely because the rules fro previously established classes were so hard to understand.

Examples of some popular open design model yacht classes:

  • 6 Metre - M6R
  • 10 rater – R10r
  • 36" (36-inch)

Closed Design or One-design Class

All entries have to be the same design. Some are kits from a single manufacturer others are open to home built model boats.

  • Soling 1 Meter
  • Micro Magic - Graupner
  • Fairwind - Kyosho

RC scale sail

We're talking about scale model sail boats that actually use its sails as the main means of propulsion. RC scale sail is called minisail in continental Europe. The vast majority of sailing scale model boats is scratch built. There are a few kits - Billings Collin Archer RS-1 comes to mind.

The prevailing problem with scaling a sailboat is that stability doesn’t scale linearly with size. The result is that model boats will always be significantly less stable than the boat or ship it was modeled after. Left as is, it may have detrimental effects on the model’s sea keeping abilities. There are ways to minimize the effect.

A smallish boat built to a large scale is more stable than a large ship to a small scale. For instance, say you can only transport a model 1m long. Building a model of an 8m cruising yacht at 1:8 scale will be more stable than a model of the USS Constitution at 1:48 scale. This is true even if they end up weighing the same and being the same length. I bet the yacht will be a much better sailer too.

Bigger is always better too, when it comes to scale RC sailboats. Try and build the biggest model you can get away with. A larger model will be more forgiving on construction techniques, materials and the weight of components. The finished model will also be faster, a better sailer and handle stronger winds than if it was built smaller.

Making considerable effort to build light is always a god habit. The higher up a part or component is located, the more important this becomes. For instance, rigging components need to be light weight.

Other factors are beam and draft (width and depth for landlubbers). A wider and deeper hull will naturally be more stable than thin and shallow.

There are two tricks to increase the stability of model boats artificially:

Add a drop keel

By adding a drop keel you can bring the center of gravity down while adding profile area. The greater under-water profile helps against drifting sideways. All sailboats drift downwind some, because the surface water moves with the wind. The lower boundary-layers of a body of water are influenced less by the wind than layers closer to the surface. Therefore, the deeper any extension of the hull is, the less drift.

Typically a boat with a drop-keel also needs a larger rudder. A good guideline is to make the rudder area 10-12% of the total submerged hull profile.

Extent the hull below the waterline

Some builders rather build the boat hull slightly out of scale than add a drop keel. The most bang-for-the-buck is to deepen the hull. Same rule apply about the rudder (rudder area = 10-12% of total submerged profile). You could technically make the hull wider, but the effect is not as great.

Any change in the submerged hull profile need to maintain the same geometric center to balance the center of effort on the sails. Naturally, if you know what you are doing, the sail and rig can be modified also.

A Final Word on Scale RC Sailboats

Generally stay away from lateen rigs, multi-hull, centerboard designs and square riggers, at least until you have become an experienced RC sailboats captain and/or builder.

  • Type of RC boat: There are several types of RC boats to choose from, including high-speed boats , large-sized boats , and budget-friendly options . Determine the type of boat that will best match your interests, skill level, and budget.
  • Size of the boat: The size of the boat affects its handling in the water. A larger boat may be more comfortable to control but might lack high speed, while a smaller boat is faster but more challenging to keep stable.
  • Battery life and charging time: A boat with a longer battery life will enable you to spend more time on the water. Be sure to check the charging time as well, and ensure that the boat comes with a long-lasting and rechargeable battery .
  • Controller range: Controller range indicates how far away you can control the boat and still maintain a stable signal. Boats with a longer controller range provide better maneuverability and a safer experience on the water.
  • Water type and environment: Consider where you will be using the boat. Some boats are designed for freshwater , while others are saltwater-resistant . Also, factors such as waves, wind, and currents play a significant role in a boat’s performance; choose a boat that can handle the water conditions in your area.

It’s also a good idea to look at product reviews and ratings online before purchasing an RC boat. Reputable websites like Amazon, RCNinjas, and RC Groups offer a wide range of options, and they have customer reviews that can provide real-world insights into the products. Some RC boat manufacturers also have their websites that sell high-quality boats that come with a warranty. Ensure that you select a reputable seller, ideally one that provides excellent customer support and after-sales service .

What do I need for a RC boat?

To begin, you will need an RC boat kit, which typically includes the boat hull, motor, steering servo, and radio system. You’ll also need a battery pack and charger, as well as a set of batteries for your transmitter. Other optional items to consider include a battery monitor, GPS tracker, and an onboard camera. Watch YouTube videos like ‘How to Build an RC Boat for $20’ for step-by-step guidance. Additionally, websites such as and have a wide selection of RC boats and related accessories.

Other great brands to consider include UDIRC , JJRC , and Altair . These brands offer a range of RC boats to suit every budget and preference and feature unique advantages and disadvantages. UDIRC, for instance, is known for producing extremely fast models with sleek designs and durable construction. On the other hand, JJRC boats are more budget-friendly and feature-packed , while Altair Aqua is ideal for beginners who want a straightforward and reliable RC boat to start their adventures.

What material is best for RC boats?

One material that is commonly used for RC boats is Plasticard or Styrene sheet. Although it is more commonly used for static display models, some RC boat builders and professionals also favor this material. For more information on RC boat materials, various websites and manufacturers offer a range of options such as fiberglass, carbon fiber, and wood.

Selecting the best RC boat for adults can be overwhelming due to the vast array of available options. Here are some factors you should consider before making a purchase:

  • Budget: The cost of RC boats can range from under $50 to several hundred dollars. Before making your purchase, set a budget for yourself and stick to it.
  • Use case: Consider what you will be using the boat for? Will you be using it for speed, racing, or just casual sailing? Some boats are designed for freshwater only while others can handle saltwater too.
  • Skill level: If you’re a beginner, choose a boat that’s easy to control and operate, and grows with you as you acquire new skills. Advanced models are designed to challenge and push the boundaries of skilled operators.
  • Battery life and charging time: Check the battery life of the boat and the charging time. These features are crucial for prolonged use without interruptions.
  • Construction quality: Look out for boats with sturdy and durable construction, waterproof design, and anti-flip functions. These features ensure the boat’s longevity and safety.
  • Warranty: Always consider if the boat has a warranty. Many RC boat brands offer a warranty against defects in materials or manufacturing issues. Some brands such as Altair Aqua offer free shipping and a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with your purchase.

In addition, you can check out online forums, social media groups, and RC boat review websites to obtain firsthand user experiences.

How to choose a brushless motor for RC boat?

When choosing a brushless motor for your RC boat, it is important to consider the size of the motor can. For hulls up to 600mm, a 28-29mm can size motor should suffice. For hulls up to 800mm, a 36mm can size motor can be used. For larger boats up to 1200mm, a 40mm can size motor can be used as long as it’s a light brushless dedicated or ABS hull. For anything larger than that, a 56-58mm motor will be required. It is also important to consider the motor’s KV rating and the boat’s overall weight. Websites like HobbyKing and Tower Hobbies offer a variety of brushless motors specifically designed for RC boats.

Top 3 Best RC Sailboats (Buyer's Guide 2023)

RC sail boat 1

If you're looking for the best RC sailboat of 2023, you've come to the right place.

We specialize in drones, but at the same time, we love anything RC related! If you love drones too, here's a  list of my best cheap drones ranked by price  in 2023. To make sure you find the best deal this year, I've put together a list of the top RC sailboats you can get - all ranked according to price, user reviews, and personal experience. So whether you're a budget shopper or just want to get the most out of your money, take a look at my top picks and find the perfect sailboat for you!

1. PLAYSTEM Voyager 400 RC - Best RC sailboat for the money


The Voyager 400 RC sailboat is one of the most popular on Amazon for a reason. Not only does it offer great value for money, but it's ideal for both beginners and intermediate users alike.

The boat stands 26.5 inches tall from bottom of keel to the top of the mast, with a 21-inch rise above the water surface, while its width measures 100mm exactly. With just some batteries and a gust of wind, you'll be ready to set sail - though you may want to avoid major waves and winds over 15mph. Voyager 400RC can be used in saltwater as well, as long as the conditions allow for it.  If you're just starting with this hobby and you want to try out a serious, sturdy and rather cheap boat, the Voyager 400 RC is absolutely perfect for you.


  • 21-inch rise above the water surface
  • It can be used in saltwater
  • Sturdy and rather cheap boat 


  • Not able to handle major waves and winds over 15mph

2.Rage Eclipse 650 (RC B1302) - Ideal for intermediates

The Rage RC Eclipse 650 sailboat is the perfect ride for any sailing enthusiast, whether they're just starting out or have been at it for years. The ABS hull is blow molded to ensure durability while the pre-applied trim design gives a full-sized sailboat look when out on the lake. There's even some convenience thrown in with this model since it arrives partially pre-rigged and ready to get on the water quickly!

The Eclipse 650 has a 17g drum-style winch servo which provides power and smoother, more scale like operation than conventional servos. From the box you'll find everything you need - 2.4GHz interference free radio system, 4 AA batteries for the transmitter and 4 for powering servos, plus an easy to assemble display stand to show off your new sailboat when not in use. With some final assembly, you'll be able to take your RC boat out on a breeze across your local pond or lake with ease!

  • The ABS hull is blow molded to ensure durability
  • Pre-applied trim design
  • 17g drum-style winch servo
  • 2.4GHz interference free radio system
  • Expensive (but that's why you're here)

3.PLAYSTEAM Voyager 280 - Best cheap RC sailboat you can find (Under $100)

The Voyager 280 is the only RC sailing boat you can find that doesn't break the $100 pricepoint. 

Compact in size and easy to use, this little boat stands at 17.5 inches tall and can be operated without any license. Just make sure to install 4AA batteries for the transmitter and charge its LiPo battery via its port in the back of the transmitter, which usually takes about 15 minutes. 

Remember to check out conditions before hitting those waves - while it's perfect for light winds, we don't recommend using it in gusty winds or above 15mph.

To access its interior, simply turn its "table" on deck 90 degrees to unlock its hatch latch from the deck below it.

If you're ready for a great adventure out on the water, then grab your gear and let this little boat show you what's possible!

  • Compact in size and easy to use
  • Can be operated without any license
  • Not able to handle major waves and winds

What's the best transmitter for RC sailboats?

My following two recommendations are 2 great compact drones that are quite silent and also small enough to travel with and not stand out as annoying.

Thankfully, all the RC saiboats in this ranking come with a transmitter included, so you don't need to worry about it. Other models won't, but... well, other models are not included in this ranking.  There isn't the absolute best transmitter for all sailing boats. But pretty much any good 2.4 GHz RC controller with the proper channels will do the trick.

What are RC sailboats and how expensive do they get? RC sailboats are remote-controlled sailboats that are used by hobbyists and professionals alike for recreation, racing, and even rescue operations. Powered exclusively by wind, these boats are generally unmotorized and can come in various sizes. The price range is between $100 and $250 for the "hobby" level versions.   Getting into this hobby is not that hard, but when it comes to any type of RC boat, you must make sure you're having plenty of room on a lake or any other large water surface.

I won't be dwelling for much on how to start the hobby, because if you're already looking for the best RC Sailboat, you might have figured out these things for yourself. How does an RC Sailboat work?

There are two types of RC boats you might be thinking of:

  • RC motorized boats
  • RC boats with sails

The difference between these two is obvious, and they have completely different operation plans.  If you have an RC boat, you will rely on the motors all the time.  An RC sailboat requires you to maneuver and speed it up using just the sails and the power of the wind. It's not that easy!

You'll be controlling only the rudder (this controls the direction of the boat in the water) and the sail trim that adjusts the angle of the sails and how much your boat is influenced by the wind blowing.

Where can I race an RC Sailboat?

Harnessing the power of the wind seems like a pretty bad idea in a world where there are already waterproof electrical motors, but this is not made for efficiency, but rather as a hobby that requires going with the flow of nature. You can have fun with these awesome toys either in a pool, pond or even on bigger lakes. Most of them are "saltwater ready", but waves might give you a hard time if it's too windy.

What to look for in a Sailboat?

A good sailboat should have good equilibrium and not tip over in stronger winds. They should also come with tow lines and be made out of good enough materials so that water won't get inside easily.

A few other important factors that not many people think of when buying one are:

  • How good is the sail material
  • How responsive  the rudde r is ( how easily it steers left or right)
  • If it has any weak spots that can break without repair
  • Size and how easy it is to carry around

What do I do if my RC sailboat tips?

This shouldn't be a reason to worry if you're using it in normal conditions. 

None of the models I presented should ever tip over in safe conditions and without holes in the hull or being hit by something else. 

If your RC sailboat tips, turn off the radio controller and use your tow line, a boat or swim to retrieve it.

Are RC boats a good gift idea for children?

Sure, if your kid is passionate about sailboats, it could be an awesome gift, but otherwise these boats are rather hard to maneuver. So I don't recommend gifting an RC sail boat to a children unless they know how to use it.

How should you properly store an RC boat when you're not using it?

Storing an RC sailboat when you're not using it is important to ensure its longevity and performance. Here are some tips to keep your sailboat in great condition when storing:

  • Make sure to clean off any dirt or dust from the RC sailboat with a soft cloth before putting it into storage.
  • Store your boat in a dry place that is not affected by direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.
  • For extra protection against moisture damage, you can place your sailboat inside a plastic bag with desiccants before storing.
  • It's also key to make sure the battery and all other electronic components are completely drained before storing - this will reduce the chances of corrosion occurring and damaging the vehicle.
  • To prevent paint chips and scratches, make sure that multiple boats are not touching each other when stored together.

Strange Glow Over Moscow Skies Triggers Panic as Explosions Reported

B right flashes lit up the night sky in southern Moscow in the early hours of Thursday morning, new footage appears to show, following reports of an explosion at an electrical substation on the outskirts of the city.

Video snippets circulating on Russian-language Telegram channels show a series of flashes on the horizon of a cloudy night sky, momentarily turning the sky a number of different colors. In a clip shared by Russian outlet, smoke can be seen rising from a building during the flashes lighting up the scene.

Newsweek was unable to independently verify the details of the video clips, including when and where it was filmed. The Russian Ministry of Emergency situations has been contacted via email.

Several Russian Telegram accounts said early on Thursday that residents of southern Moscow reported an explosion and a fire breaking out at an electrical substation in the Leninsky district, southeast of central Moscow.

Local authorities in the Leninsky district told Russian outlet RBC that the explosion had happened in the village of Molokovo. "All vital facilities are operating as normal," Leninsky district officials told the outlet.

The incident at the substation in Molokovo took place just before 2 a.m. local time, reported.

Messages published by the ASTRA Telegram account, run by independent Russian journalists, appear to show residents close to the substation panicking as they question the bright flashes in the sky. One local resident describes seeing the bright light before losing access to electricity, with another calling the incident a "nightmare."

More than 10 villages and towns in the southeast of Moscow lost access to electricity, the ASTRA Telegram account also reported. The town of Lytkarino to the southeast of Moscow, lost electricity, wrote the eastern European-based independent outlet, Meduza.

Outages were reported in the southern Domodedovo area of the city, according to another Russian outlet, as well as power failures in western Moscow. Electricity was then restored to the areas, the outlet reported.

The cause of the reported explosion is not known. A Telegram account aggregating news for the Lytkarino area described the incident as "an ordinary accident at a substation."

The outlet quoted a local resident who speculated that a drone may have been responsible for the explosion, but no other Russian source reported this as a possible cause.

Ukraine has repeatedly targeted Moscow with long-range aerial drones in recent months, including a dramatic wave of strikes in late May.

On Sunday, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said the region's air defense systems had intercepted an aerial drone over the city of Elektrostal, to the east of Moscow. No damage or casualties were reported, he said.

The previous day, Russian air defenses detected and shot down another drone flying over the Bogorodsky district, northeast of central Moscow, Sobyanin said.

There is currently no evidence that an aerial drone was responsible for the reported overnight explosion at the electrical substation in southern Moscow.

For the first time Rosatom Fuel Division supplied fresh nuclear fuel to the world’s only floating nuclear cogeneration plant in the Arctic

The fuel was supplied to the northernmost town of Russia along the Northern Sea Route.

The first in the history of the power plant refueling, that is, the replacement of spent nuclear fuel with fresh one, is planned to begin before 2024. The manufacturer of nuclear fuel for all Russian nuclear icebreakers, as well as the Akademik Lomonosov FNPP, is Machinery Manufacturing Plant, Joint-Stock Company (MSZ JSC), a company of Rosatom Fuel Company TVEL that is based in Elektrostal, Moscow Region.

The FNPP includes two KLT-40S reactors of the icebreaking type. Unlike convenient ground-based large reactors (that require partial replacement of fuel rods once every 12-18 months), in the case of these reactors, the refueling takes place once every few years and includes unloading of the entire reactor core and loading of fresh fuel into the reactor.

The cores of KLT-40 reactors of the Akademik Lomonosov floating power unit have a number of advantages compared to the reference ones: a cassette core was used for the first time in the history of the unit, which made it possible to increase the fuel energy resource to 3-3.5 years between refuelings, and also reduce the fuel component of the electricity cost by one and a half times. The FNPP operating experience formed the basis for the designs of reactors for nuclear icebreakers of the newest series 22220. Three such icebreakers have been launched by now.

For the first time the power units of the Akademik Lomonosov floating nuclear power plant were connected to the grid in December 2019, and put into commercial operation in May 2020. The supply of nuclear fuel from Elektrostal to Pevek and its loading into the second reactor is planned for 2024. The total power of the Akademik Lomonosov FNPP, supplied to the coastal grid of Pevek without thermal energy consumption on shore, is about 76 MW, being about 44 MW in the maximum thermal power supply mode. The FNPP generated 194 million kWh according to the results of 2023. The population of Pevek is just a little more than 4 thousand, while the FNPP has a potential for supplying electricity to a city with a population of up to 100 thousand people. After the FNPP commissioning two goals were achieved. These include first of all the replacement of the retiring capacities of the Bilibino NPP, which has been operating since 1974, as well as the Chaunskaya TPP, which has already been operating for more than 70 years. Secondly, energy is supplied to the main mining companies in western Chukotka in the Chaun-Bilibino energy hub a large ore and metal cluster, including gold mining companies and projects related to the development of the Baimsk ore zone. In September 2023, a 110 kilovolt power transmission line with a length of 490 kilometers was put into operation, connecting the towns of Pevek and Bilibino. The line increased the reliability of energy supply from the FNPP to both Bilibino consumers and mining companies, the largest of which is the Baimsky GOK. The comprehensive development of the Russian Arctic is a national strategic priority. To increase the NSR traffic is of paramount importance for accomplishment of the tasks set in the field of cargo shipping. This logistics corridor is being developed due regular freight voyages, construction of new nuclear-powered icebreakers and modernization of the relevant infrastructure. Rosatom companies are actively involved in this work. Rosatom Fuel Company TVEL (Rosatom Fuel Division) includes companies fabricating nuclear fuel, converting and enriching uranium, manufacturing gas centrifuges, conducting researches and producing designs. As the only nuclear fuel supplier to Russian NPPs, TVEL supplies fuel for a total of 75 power reactors in 15 countries, for research reactors in nine countries, as well as for propulsion reactors of the Russian nuclear fleet. Every sixth power reactor in the world runs on TVEL fuel. Rosatom Fuel Division is the world’s largest producer of enriched uranium and the leader on the global stable isotope market. The Fuel Division is actively developing new businesses in chemistry, metallurgy, energy storage technologies, 3D printing, digital products, and decommissioning of nuclear facilities. TVEL also includes Rosatom integrators for additive technologies and electricity storage systems. Rosenergoatom, Joint-Stock Company is part of Rosatom Electric Power Division and one of the largest companies in the industry acting as an operator of nuclear power plants. It includes, as its branches, 11 operating NPPs, including the FNPP, the Scientific and Technical Center for Emergency Operations at NPPs, Design and Engineering as well as Technological companies. In total, 37 power units with a total installed capacity of over 29.5 GW are in operation at 11 nuclear power plants in Russia. Machinery Manufacturing Plant, Joint-Stock Company (MSZ JSC, Elektrostal) is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of fuel for nuclear power plants. The company produces fuel assemblies for VVER-440, VVER-1000, RBMK-1000, BN-600,800, VK-50, EGP-6; powders and fuel pellets intended for supply to foreign customers. It also produces nuclear fuel for research reactors. The plant belongs to the TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom.
