Any tips on MiniSquadron?

I was having a lot of fun with MiniSquadron, but at the moment, I'm getting rather frustrated by it, when I'm stalling randomly and the AI seems to be getting cheaper as the game goes on. I'm on the fifth level right now, I think, but the sense of fun I was having isn't quite there anymore. It's more of a frustrating experience now, than a fun one.

Any tips on how to get better at the game?

I also found it kind of unbalanced how my friend has a few crazy good planes unlocked and whenever we play in multiplayer, he wins automatically pretty much, because the best plane I have isn't even half as good as his best one. Is there a way to even out the playing field a bit? Do I stand a chance when they pull good planes out against my less-than-mediocre ones?

2. Practice.

A more serious answer: use different planes. If you keep to one particular favorite, you will not unlock new planes very quickly. Try the bulky animal planes -- they'll get you new planes in no time.

True. But they're tough, and if you survive only a few waves you can unlock several planes at once.

Laser planes unlock other planes fast.

They score points like NP on most levels. However, they SUCK ass on confrontation with those planes that follow you around like a bitch and aims you constantly.
