ever see a video of a full size 4 engine Bomber lose an outside engine, well I have, and I tell you that I have seen a 100 inch span RC B-17 lose an outside engine, both plane immediately rolled over and went nose down into the ground,

note, when I use the word "lose" I mean the engine stops running

Evan Wolfe built one like that and had intricate detail down to ever factory rivet in the skin.

Did exactly that when he lost an engine.

Size factors in stability, how much is another story.

One thing the plane has going for it in a big way is it's huge tail surfaces. These will greatly stabilize the plane in all fight routines and minimize the effects of an engine out should it happen. At best though, the first few flights will not be relaxed occasions either for the pilot or his ground observers. Remember, even though the plane looks like a B-17, it is a completely untested design. Even relatively simple, single engine passenger planes such as the Cirrus had horrible testing phases when unexpected events showed their ugly heads. A complex, 4 engine anything isn't to be taken lightly. I would even worry about structural resonance from the (4) engines. But then, maybe I get concerned about more things than I should.
All great comments that hit the nail on the head.

It comes a long the lines of "no old brave pilots".

Would love to see this tested on the salt flats where risk would be minimized greatly
