Default Mini ugly stick

Well I have started another plane. A mini ugly stick from R/C Modeler Magazine. Don't have a date on when they were first offered, but that's no big deal. It shows a Veco .19 as motivation, however, I will be using electric. I have a question on a aspect of the constitution, it shows 1/4 inch and 1/8th spruce for the wing spares. Can I use balsa instead, if I use a good hard piece and make the spears myself using a balsa stripper. I realize that multiple passes will have to be made, but I feel as the balsa will be lighter, instead of spruce. Any help will be appreciated. The wingspan is approximately 36 inches.

I would use a strip of carbon fiber capped with balsa, top and bottom. The balsa cap is so you don't sand the carbon fiber.
