What things can I do to make my self a hard target and hope to get away alive.
First, being in a frigate when they're in a ship 10 times bigger than yours is already a good start. You are (a) faster (unless they are fitted with a microwarpdrive) and (b) smaller. Smaller makes it take longer for them to lock on to you, giving you more time to have a chance at getting away.
When you say, make yourself a hard target, you really need to expand in what kind of activities you plan on engaging in. My knee-jerk reaction to that question is (a) stay in high sec and (b) don't carry things that are super valuable in your cargo hold. So don't fly a billion ISK worth BPO around, afking in your frigate.
But you probably mean you are flying around in low sec, so how can you make yourself a harder target? Well, what are you doing in low sec? Are you simply going from gate to gate, transporting some small item in your frigate? Then the answer is fairly simple:
Use the time when you arrive cloaked in a system to your advantage. Take note of how many ships are at the gate, how large they are, and most importantly, what the target to warp towards will be. Keep planets on your overview when doing this; it will give you more targets to jump to. Choose a target to warp to that is closest to your alignment (you have to turn less). Right-Click -> Warp to x km and hope they can't lock you in time. Something that might be helpful in this kind of activity is a cloaking device if you have to turn to align to a warp target. You arrive cloaked after jumping, so hit your max speed button; this will decloak you. Then quickly hit your ships cloak. Then double click near the object you want to warp to. Your ship will align. Then you must, as quickly as possible, turn off your cloaking device and activate warp.
In any case, it wouldn't hurt to fit nano-fibers on your ship. This will help you accelerate quicker, and therefore reach warp quicker.
Other thing to do: Make safe spots in a system you will be visiting often or spending some time in. You can make another thread to ask about safe spots. ;)
