Sam when you get your DX6i there is a switch that you throw and the a/c will snap roll perfectly,No input from you required.

Using the snap roll switch is a good way of geting used to how your model reacts to snap roll, when the switch is used full deflection is almost instant. What you musn't do is set it up for positive snaps then flick the switch when you are inverted & low unless you want to test your heart beat.

It's not recommended to snap roll trainer type aircraft, excessive amount's of stress are placed on the airframe, they aren't always strong enough.

I have seen some people over power their trainers so it can do aerobatics, But usualy the wings fold from over stressing the airframe!

I have used a snap switch in days gone by when the first Futaba FF7 had all the switches on the face of the trannie to set up positive negative left and right snaps. These switches seem to have gone out of fashion with Futaba at least, you can still set up a snap roll swith but it's complicated and hardly worth the effort, far better in the long run to learn to use the sticks
