Can you help me ?

I'm not 100% certain, but I'm pretty sure that the 717 uses conventional hydraulic, not fly-by-wire controls.

I believe it only has fly-by-wire spoilers.

As with many of Boeing's plane the back up systems are Fly-by-wire. The main systems is Hydrualic and the back up system is electronic. It's saves room and $$$ doing this. the 767, 747 737NG , 757, and 777 are like this.
