During a flight from the pilot's private airstrip to Mudgee, the aircraft's engine began to run roughly and the pilot applied carburettor heat for approximately one minute. The engine began to run smoothly for a short while and then began to run roughly a second time before losing power completely. The pilot located an area suitable to conduct a forced landing and on short final approach, he noticed a powerline directly ahead of the aircraft. He then attempted to descend below the powerline, but the right wing and strut collided with it, causing the aircraft to impact the ground heavily. The aircraft was substantially damaged and the pilot vacated the aircraft uninjured.
