      "Neutral"? What's that? There IS no "neutral" for a kite, unless
      it's on the ground, or released to a properly functioning depower
      leash. You must mean zenith, which would more descriptively be
      called "lofting position" (the cause of roughly 50% of the fatalities
      to date).
