Well I am not a amateur on the topic, but seeing that you are sill not recieving any response i will give you useful information i think i can give to you.

First of all, the coneccion can be done as duck-development says. I dont know if erlecopter is a good idea due to the fact that it is discontinued (it uses ros hydro, very old). I do not have experience on using ros in a raspberry so i cannot help, but for sure if you search, you will find (or anyone recommend you packages...).

You should also include a gps anthenna if you want to play with geolocalitzation (i foud a few ones for 3 buck on internet) and i think, if you want to give the exactl location of a person, with a 2d camera mybe there is not enough information (you can detect people but not exactly ...(more)

You can connect the pi to ony quad copter controller with an serial interface.

To have the least offer use a pixhawk controller there are already many ros components.

Ore just buy a

With ros inside
