The pilot stated that after departure he performed airwork then returned to the airport where he performed two touch-and-go landings. During the third approach he allowed the airplane to become too low and slow and only applied partial power. The airplane stalled, descended, and impacted the runway nose and left wing low. The airplane then veered off the runway and collided with a runway light. The pilot further stated that there was no flight control or engine preimpact failure or malfunction.
