Default RE: Spurce vs Basswood

I'm going to test out the 20% rule for balsa replacement of spruce on my models this year.

On the giant sweet'n low stick I'm using ½" x 1" laminated spars from four layers of ¼" x ½" balsa strips capped with ½" carbon fiber strips.

I saw this method used on a 96" flying boat model years ago and have always wanted to try it.
