With only a 9+2 array of microtubules and some dynein, you too can enjoy the power stroke and recovery phases of flagellation!

Sperm have been doing it for billions of years, and now you too could enjoy the whip-like motion of your very own flagella!
When you get two flagella, you will no longer have to whip it around, but can enjoy the more efficient breast stroke by coordinating your dual flagella!

Basal bodies not included, dyneins may possess one to three heads.

Flag`el*la"tion (?), n. [L. flagellatio: cf. F. flagellation.]

A beating or flogging; a whipping; a scourging.

Garth.
