I've never thought of snap flaps that way, interesting. I use snap flap in an F3B plane for the speed task and have always just thought of it as a way of preventing a snap/spin from an accelerated stall if I pull a tight turn. I prefer to carve a turn without any flap and I have s/f set on programmable mixes so it doesn't come in until after 7/8 stick travel. So, it gives protection and an increased pitch control, how about that.
