I don't think the LG thing will work, they have to be extended
independently of the LG. In fact, if you're moving and have both gear
down and doors open, your plane's broke or you screwed up. (at some
point I will put in an emergency door release and bomb release, but
that's fluff for way down the road). Speedbrakes would be great, though
I would request that there be capacity for multiple independent ones,
just on the general principal of flexibility.
