Robustness of transition from 3D spinning to 2D flapping. At Fa = 200, flapping is stable. Initial configuration is set to the spinning solution obtained at Fa = 185. At Fa = 200, the filament trajectory converges to in-plane motion. The basin of attraction of these planar flapping solutions seems to consist of all initial perturbations.
