Build your own 

underwater drone

You can buy flying drones and build them for cheap. Let’s make the same for underwater!

What will you get?

CPS 5 Course is the world’s first DIY course on underwater drones.

Bill Of Materials

A complete list of every component needed for the underwater drone build, with online source links.

3D Models

STL files, GCODEs for Prusa 3D printers as well as CAD files for modeling programs.

Assembly Manual

Easy to follow instructions explaining how to build the CPS 5 underwater drone from scratch.

Video Lessons

Educational videos explaining the engineering behind all of our design decisions.

13 Chapters

Knowledge divided into 13 sections, each one covering the next part of the drone, with the final assembly at the end.

Our Support

We care about your progress in the course, that’s why we help you with your build either directly or in a discussion section located in every lesson.

What will you build?

CPS 5 (Custom Printed Submarine) is a fully functional, 3D printed underwater drone. All of the components cost ~$700 (+VAT in EU).

85 meters Depth

We’ve tested CPS 5 up to simulated pressure of 85 meters underwater. It’s possible with our own watertight endcap design.

3D Printed

The majority of the drone is 3D printed – the entirety of the shell, propellers, mounts as well as water-proof endcaps.

Fast & Maneuverable

With top speed of 2m/s, CPS 5 is really maneuverable. It also has active self-leveling, which we test in the video below:

Live Video Feed

QGroundControl app which displays all of the data and the 1080p live video feed from the drone’s camera onboard.

Who are we?

Hello, my name is Filip Buława (left) and Peter’s name is Piotr Domanowski (right). We make underwater drones for 4 years already, since 2018.

We’ve started back in high-school in our home town in Poland. Back then it was just another cool 3D printing project for a competition.

Our first prototype, 2018

Our first school presentation about 3D printing

We’ve then decided to continue our project by making new prototypes for new competitions.

After over 2 years of us desperately trying to fund the project to make the drone actually usable, we’ve finally started making the online course.

We’ve moved to Gdańsk, where we have the Polish sea

Us at Maker Faire Prague in 2022

Our mission is to make building underwater drones as cool as the flying ones. You can help us by donating!
