    If the string is in tune and it's floppy, you need a heavier string for that one, The Floyd ain't the problem - physics is.

    The snappy sound COULD be that your neck has some backbow to it, in other words, the string is barely almost not quite but damn close to bottoming out. If you think it's doing that, go counter clockwise 1/4 turn on the thick-string side post of the Floyd, to lift it a touch higher. See if that takes the flappy away at all.
