Hail the return of the visual warning light for audible altimeters! L&B has made the ability to increase your altitude awareness by adding a visual LED port to warn you at the altitudes you set.
The OPTIMA™ II with Visual Warning Port is an audible altimeter with freefall alerts, canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones. The canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones allow you to preset warning altitudes for use under canopy and, if desired, to provide timing beeps to help you track your landing pattern.
The Optima II with Visual Warning Port can be connected to the Optima LED Indicator or the HypEye D Pro w/Expansion Kit.
This version of the Optima II is not water-resistant with the visual warning port option.
The visual warning port OPTIMA II does not include the actual HypEye D Pro/Expansion Kit and/or Optima LED Indicator. The lights can be ordered separately from ChutingStar.
L&B has listened to skydivers across the globe and has answered the call with OPTIMA II™! The OPTIMA II™ is a more advanced audible altimeter with extremely accurate altitude detection.
OPTIMA II™ is so accurate that it has an added set of warning beeps that can be set for a specific altitude during normal and high speed landing approaches. This feature has been added to aid both swoopers and conservative pilots alike find the “sweet spot” for initiating landing sequences. It is recommended that your eyesight and your experience be the primary source of determining at what altitude to start your landing sequence or pattern approaches.
The OPTIMA™ II is an audible altimeter with freefall alerts, canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones. The canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones allow you to preset warning altitudes for use under canopy and, if desired, to provide timing beeps to help you track your landing pattern.
The OPTIMA™ II can be set on the ground or in the aircraft, and if the DZ elevation differs from that of the airport.

For extra protection of your Optima II such as intentional water landings or pond swoopers, add the Protektor case to your order. It is a two-piece, clam-shell design that keeps the water out of your Optima and still allows full functionality of the unit and visibility of the screen interface. A spare battery set can also be added.
The OPTIMA™ II can be set on the ground or in the aircraft, and if the DZ elevation differs from that of the airport. The manufacturer, Larsen & Brusgaard, is known worldwide for their superior customer service.
