Utwig Juggers use Avatars as flying refueling stations.

Agreed, The Avatar aint as good as many people think.

I always kinda liked the Supox and thought if you put the time in you could make it a lethal ship with its crazy flying abilities, but I never really managed to master it.  Did anyone else get any mileage out of it?

Very easy against the Avatar: Just hit the backwards and make him follow. Use full battery and shoot his zapstats first (at the point where they pass the Avatar in your direction). Your backwardgear is strong enough to flee his gravitation sucker. Else you can still fly a little left or right. This will make him leave his path and therefor he'll lose a bit of speed. Otherwise emergency-fleeing starts by letting go the special key while thrusting and steer immediatly away from him. Will cost you against the best computer a few lives from the laser and 1 (maximum 2) from the zapstats. but nearly anytime i win without loosing a single life. Grin
Afterwards the Avatar will be like a sitting duck. Wink

Therefor the Blade is my favourite one. And unrivalled for me as well.
Although the Marauder is hard to fight with the blade. But thats by far the most difficult one to fight (due to the zoom, i cannot see the spinning blades while flying backwards and firing at the Marauder).
