Narrative:The pilot stated that, the flight to FABS was uneventful. He conducted three touch and go circuits before routing to FAWB. During the return leg the pilot was cruising at 1 500 above ground level (AGL) with indicated airspeed of 90 knots and engine power setting of 4 800 revolutions per min (RPM). Without any warnings, the engine stopped in flight. This was followed by loss of oil and fuel pressure. There were no warning lights illuminated in the instrument panel prior to the engine quitting. The pilot conducted trouble shooting by switching between the tanks to no avail. The pilot selected an open area left of his track and conducted a forced landing. During the forced landing roll, the undercarriage broke off and one propeller blade came to contact with the ground and bent backward. The aircraft came to a stop moment thereafter. The pilot switched off electrics and vacated the aircraft unassisted.
