If the quality is just as good as their other aircraft this will be a good thing! Will be watching with interest.

You are correct. Pilot-RC makes a very nice plane. I will welcome a jet from them.

If talking budget planes the ones called composite are often with balsa wings/stab/fins anyway. The fuselage are mostly from gelcoat and I have a hard time calling these composite planes. Balsa often out perform those composites as the ones making an all balsa airplane often know allot about how it's done while the "composite" ones seem to lack the manufacturers skills with too weak built up parts and bad glue joints.

For ARF I would go all balsa or all composite, not a mix. Black horse and Phoenix are also making pretty good balsa jets now days.

90mm EDF or 44-60N turbine are a HUGE jump. Even a P20 will outperform most 90mm EDF setups, so either it won't fly on 90mm EDF or it will be over powered by the 60N turbine. My guess is the later, 60N will be too heavy and maybe too much power? Depending on price and availability I might try one with a Kolibri T35.
