I have a very similar setup except my flex hose is 6”. It collects virtually all the chips with no problem. Assuming your DC is working properly with adequate air flow, I’m thinking that perhaps the passageway for chip ejection inside the planer is partially blocked. Also, are you using the plastic dust chute adapter that came with the planer? Is it secure? I have had problems with the weight of the flex hose pulling the adapter out of alignment partially blocking the dust port. If all of that is OK, I would say that you need a larger hose.
