Default 800 EVO on 5 motors

Does anybody know if the EVO 800 will operate if you lose 1 maybe 2 motors ?

That's up to the flight controller. The WKM A2 will still control the aircraft if it loses one motor (in a hex or octo configuration) albeit with a rotational (yawing) movement. IOW the aircraft will be spinning due to the loss of the torque from that motor.

I have had this happen myself, the aircraft was completely controllable, holding position while spinning and I was able to land the aircraft without damage.

The other concern that will play a part in this is how heavy your aircraft is. If your pushing max payload for your motor/prop combination and lose a motor, you're probably coming down pretty quick...
