From my estimated the cost is around 300€ starting from zero. Plus a Camera
with something like CHDK - Given that you crash your first experiments
it gets a little more expensive. 

Thats for the flying gear.

I am now more interested in stuff like which camera, focal length,
stride width, aperture, resolution on ground, stitching the images or
georeferencing the individual images. Producing the geotiffs, creating a
WMS server etc.

I have some software tools up in my head like Hugin (Image stitching and
lense correction), QGis for Georeferencing the images although the stuff
i saw is pretty complicated.
