Here is another idea I had while doing some more research and investigation on the full-scale.

The Full-scale had its turbine located fairly far forward. The EDF's on the plans are located about 35-45% of the chord, and the inlets are about 1-2" in diameter large than they need to be (larger than scale). So if we reduce the inlet size down to 90mm diameter and move the EDF units as far forward as we can (about 2" aft of the leading edge) This would allow a good bit of the duct extensions to remain inside of the airplane.

Do you guys think this would allow the air enough time to straighten itself out and still fly well, or would the duct extensions still need to extend aft of the wing TE?
