Zara fishes in her pocket for the penknife, but doesn't approach the helicopter yet.

"I sure can, if I can get close enough before they take off," says Liz, already racing for the helicopter as she fiddles with her makeshift device. "At least we know it's not aliens."

"I bet they're looking for that thing you found in the ground earlier Liz." Lew shouts as he hurries forward towards the helicopter.

"Either that or those who disturbed it," Liz calls, "namely us!"

As the investigators approach, they are able to hear, over the roar of the helicopter's engines, shouted conversation from the men, in Russian.

-- Someone comes! --

-- Can we not take off? --

They are answered by a woman's voice.

-- Blasted engine! --

Spoiler:
Since a helicopter is a much larger device than the drone or the two watches of the men, I'll give the folks inside it a chance to get the engine working properly. Average INT of 9
VictoriaSilverwolf rolled 1d20:
2


-- A-ha! I have fixed it! --

As the machine vaults into the sky, one of the two men aims a pistol at the investigators and fires.

Spoiler:
Due to darkness and the moving helicopter, I'll reduce DEX to 3

The shot goes wild, kicking up dirt from the ground. The helicopter roars away.

Cursing colourfully, Tony watches the helicopter peel away for a second. Then he races off to the nearest pay phone to call Agent Carson in an attempt to get the chopper intercepted.

"Probably just as well," says Liz. "Like the proverbial dog chasing the car, what would we have done if we had caught it?" She goes over to the landing site and inspects it for any clues that may have been left behind in the Russians' haste to depart. "They have to have a base for that chopper, and we may be able to track it down using the radio detection equipment I still have. That drone was giving off a signal, and it most likely still is. I can take readings from here and another position to triangulate its location once it stops moving."
