I may be wrong but it seems like the model is climbing quicker and has a higher level flight speed now with the new inlet configuration. Can you comment on that?

I'd also suggest that you may have pinched down on the inlet size a little too much. As I recall reading in the distant past a good rule of thumb for the ducted fan inlet to outlet ratio is about 1.5:1 in terms of area. If you do such a calculation you will need to not include the area blocked off by the tail end of the fuselage.
