Without a conventional vertical stabilizer I can see how the B2 would 'hunt' as far as yaw.I doubt that it would recover from spin,the same as it wouldn't recover from stall,as Glen Edwards and crew found out in the YB-49.Fly-by-wire seems to be the only thing between the flight crew and a crash.The Granville Brother's Gee-Bee could have used it.
