There are ways with some drivers to do AP and rfmon, but I haven't tried recently. Everyone has been more interested in a full drone, which is what newcore supports now.

You wouldn't want to connect wirelessly to the drone, because then you'll see your own traffic and it'll go into a loop. You definitely want to use a wired ethernet connection, no matter what the setup, to connect the drone to the laptop.

There is some support for broadcom now, check the links page and the devel blog for kismet.
