What type of filter system are you using with your cooler?

It was running so slowly that it took close to 45 min to get all my volume.

Does the corn have to milled?
I think that was my problem when I looked at the crush, I had a lot of smaller corn pieces and flour.

I'm late to this and while your questions have already been addressed here is my take: Even with 20% flaked maize you shouldn't have any mashing or sparging problems without the addition of rice hulls. How are you adding the flakes? The best way, in my experience, is to mix the flakes with the dry, malted and milled grains prior to mashing in. This distributes the flakes among the malt fragments nicely and just about eliminates any clumping or sticking problems. I use a cooler with plastic manifold and a conventional sparge but I would think it should work well with any system or method.

I think the biggest reason for this problem on this batch was a brainfart at 530am and milled the flaked corn along with all the other grains.

But the prior 2 times that I have made this recipe, I have had issues with sticky mash. I made this batch again one week afterwards and threw 3 cups of hulls in and it went completely better.
