Good starting point for aerial photography via GoPro + Drone??

I tried a search on the site for "aerial" and "aerial photography."  No luck with either.

I just got a GoPro (well, a cheaper alternative, since I'm assuming I'll trash this camera in the learning stages).  I'd love to get some aerial photographs when I visit Death Valley, etc.  I know a lot of hobbyists have their own (non-military, obviously) drones, and they attach their still or video cameras to the drones.  I've watched a few of the videos on YouTube, and the results look pretty impressive.

Anyone know a few good websites for total beginners?  If anyone in the DPR community is doing this process, any suggestions re equipment, advice, warnings, etc??

I'm not even sure if this is the correct DPR forum for this question . . . should I re-post in a different one?

Thanks in advance for the feedback and/or suggestions.
