That uncontrolled yawing oscilations is why they dropped the YB49 as a bomber. It couldn't make a straight bombing run because of the yawing motion.
Just for an experiment, how about a reversed gullwing like the Corsair, but in your flying wing configuration. Should be more stable going from the anhedral to dihedral.
