any idea to how to get the powerup at cloudcity. The AWing is too damn fast...

Hit brakes, dive into the powerup, nose up REAL fast and power outta there before a stray Interceptor comes along. Or you could just crash into the powerup, depending on whether you are using IAMDOLLY or not.

At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi.
At last we will have revenge.

This is a hard powerup to get safely. You have to brake the A-Wing hard and the angle of approach is critical. Too shallow and you'll never reach the bonus, too deep and you'll crash for sure. It takes practice, what else can one say. Redwing is right, you need to pull up hard and fast once you nab the prize.

The best approach for me is to the right of the city, make a hard left corner and slowly (brakes) snatch the bonus. Then as was said, pull up HARD and to the right to fly out of the city.

Experiment with different approaches.
