I would do something like this.

Slight bends, short runs, air flowing in the right direction

- tynewman

This solution gives you 180 degrees worth of bends before you even get to the ceiling. You never want to come directly from a bend into a cyclone – especially with a flexible pipe. It disrupts the smooth airflow needed for the cyclone to work properly. Not a good design. Come out of the cyclone straight to the ceiling. A sweeping 90 along the ceiling. Then for each drop a 45 wye to the wall then 90 down.
