On landing approach to ZZZ, I competed the landing checklist on the downwind for runway. Shortly after the completion of the checklist, on base leg, we experienced a compete electrical failure. I believed the aircraft to be configured for landing, as the checklist had already been completed. I continued the landing approach. Second check, gear handle was down, flaps set, 80 KTS, no warning lights witnessed. Shortly before touchdown, I heard the stall warning horn, and then landed the aircraft gear up. Three souls onboard, no injuries. Aircraft damage appeared to be limited to the propeller and some sheet metal damage to the flaps and nose gear doors. I did not consider the damage to be 'substantial' in nature as per far 830. There were no damages to persons or property other than the aircraft itself. Contributing factors were electrical failure, resulting in the failure of the landing extension system and warning system. Pilot overload due to low time and lack of emergency training.

Title: INEXPERIENCED PLT OF PA28R LANDED GEAR UP FOLLOWING COMPLETE ELECTRICAL FAILURE. PLT FAILED TO UTILIZE MANUAL GEAR EXTENSION PROC DUE TO LACK OF EMER TRAINING ON THE ACFT.
Narrative: ON LNDG APCH TO ZZZ, I COMPETED THE LNDG CHKLIST ON THE DOWNWIND FOR RWY. SHORTLY AFTER THE COMPLETION OF THE CHKLIST, ON BASE LEG, WE EXPERIENCED A COMPETE ELECTRICAL FAILURE. I BELIEVED THE ACFT TO BE CONFIGURED FOR LNDG, AS THE CHKLIST HAD ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED. I CONTINUED THE LNDG APCH. SECOND CHECK, GEAR HANDLE WAS DOWN, FLAPS SET, 80 KTS, NO WARNING LIGHTS WITNESSED. SHORTLY BEFORE TOUCHDOWN, I HEARD THE STALL WARNING HORN, AND THEN LANDED THE ACFT GEAR UP. THREE SOULS ONBOARD, NO INJURIES. ACFT DAMAGE APPEARED TO BE LIMITED TO THE PROP AND SOME SHEET METAL DAMAGE TO THE FLAPS AND NOSE GEAR DOORS. I DID NOT CONSIDER THE DAMAGE TO BE 'SUBSTANTIAL' IN NATURE AS PER FAR 830. THERE WERE NO DAMAGES TO PERSONS OR PROPERTY OTHER THAN THE ACFT ITSELF. CONTRIBUTING FACTORS WERE ELECTRICAL FAILURE, RESULTING IN THE FAILURE OF THE LNDG EXTENSION SYS AND WARNING SYS. PLT OVERLOAD DUE TO LOW TIME AND LACK OF EMER TRAINING.
