At 1345 Eastern time, the aircraft was substantially damaged during a forced landing. The Private pilot sustained minor injuries; visual conditions prevailed. According to the pilot, the airplane began to lose power after a descent from 3000 feet to 1500. The pilot adjusted the propeller control to the full forward position and increased throttle but the engine continued to lose power and RPM, and the pilot was unable to arrest the airplanes descent. The engine and an electronic engine-monitoring instrument were retained for further examination.
