Balsa properties

Hello I was wondering does anyone have an Idea for which type of balsa wood we should use to make wings and spars for a model airplane that will be flying at slow speeds without sharp turns or difficult maneuvers and the properties of this balsa wood.

Use 8 lb/ft3 for the spars and 5 lb/ft3 for the ribs, C-grain is prefered for ribs.
