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.
