It feels to me that the key bind system the have in the book  (when i click up, move the plane up) seems very unresponsive at times, or too sensitive at times. Like if i hold down left for 2-3 seconds, release left then hold down right, the plane wont move. is there a better way of doing this?

This sounds more like an issue somewhere else in the code.

Alternatively you can take a look at Thor's implementation.

The code is the exact same as in the book

I don't see how the key binding (i.e. mapping an action to a key) is related to responsiveness. Can you be more concrete?
