Almost all modern military fighter aircraft are purposely designed to be unstable and want to fly backwards it is only the fly by wire system that allows them to fly. Doing this allows them to be extremely fast at maneuvering.

On the other hand the F117 was just plain un aerodynamic and had to be flown by computer, hence the Woblin Goblin nickname.
