The experimental amateur-built airplane was substantially damaged when the left main landing gear collapsed during landing. The pilot stated that on short final for runway 21 (2,450 feet by 150 feet, turf) the airplane's sink rate was "higher than it should have been" and that he "did not correct it soon enough." The airplane landed hard, the pilot felt something "give" on the left side, and the left main landing gear collapsed. The pilot stated that the airplane then "swerved to the left" but he was able to stop the airplane on the runway. The pilot reported no mechanical anomalies with the airplane.
