I believe that you can only do a manual sync, for example, use the mysqldump command to export your database from your Managed MySQL cluster and then import the .sql dump to your local MySQL instance on your Droplet.

You can also setup a cron job and partly automate the process so that the export and the import run every few hours/days for example.
