hydraulic failure and gear drop



I fly the TFDI 717 often (my favorite plane) and occasionally I use software that will simulate a hydraulic failure.  I believe the real world 717 can do a gravity drop of the wheels, is this possible to simulate in the TFDI 717?

Otherwise I get to land with wheels up, and no flaps, and no brakes.  I might have half a chance with the wheels!  :)

Thanks very much for any assistance.

The built-in manual landing gear extension key should work for the emergency drop. We do not have the handle itself modeled, but the ability to gravity drop the gear was coded (if I remember correctly).
