Depends if you're interested in the Revit systems aspect, but to model that you could use an in-place sweep family to create the top elbow (setting the category to duct fittings and adding a connector to the end) and another in-place family for the straight fitting with a normal transition duct fitting at the end of it.  (See Revit screenshot)Capture.JPG

I start with big purple R --> new -> family and categorize it as a duct fitting (multi-port).  Then I model it.  I never use in-place families.

The file is too big for the Autodesk discussion groups.  I can send you the file via email or ftp.  That said, I agree with Sandleaz, if you can use a regular duct fitting family vs. in-place--do so.  However, if you're only needing the geometry (as is the objective of many MEP design and construction firms) and you aren't using the air flow data then modeling in-place might be quicker for unique circumstaces.  HTH
