### Abstract

We present a study of planar physical solutions to the Lorentz-Dirac equation in a constant electromagnetic field. In this case, we reduced the Lorentz-Dirac equation to one second-order differential equation. We obtained the asymptotics of physical solutions to this equation at large proper times. It turns out that, in a crossed constant uniform electromagnetic field with vanishing invariants, a charged particle enters a universal regime at large times. We found that the ratios of momentum components that tend to constants are determined only by the external field. This effect is essentially due to a radiation reaction. There is no such effect for the Lorentz equation in this field.
