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 is now water resistant! The OPTIMA II can be set on the ground or in the aircraft, and if the DZ elevation differs from that of the airport.
