This is something that I'm capable of doing. I can work on it in my free time over the next few days.  I just need to set up a vm image and optimize it for low end hardware, and install the tools.  Can you guys link me to the git pages/ websites for the software you'd like to see included?

You should be able to easily customize the image to use e.g. XFCE instead of unity...
And you can also easily add these extra packages you mentioned...

No, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS need PAE and the popular second hand laptops usually don´t have it, like thinkpad and others.
Further the ram usage and graphic driver have several issues that are points against using ubuntu for base station using cheap used laptops.
live cd should not only be the code running paparazzi, but should contain gis tools like openstreetmap, wine, gps tools,
flightgear, digital video image stabilisation software, licence plate recognition, moving maps, frequence monitoring with dab stick,
software for ADS-B receiver, nasa digital elevation map, dgps base reference station software, ... .

If you want to make a new live CD (can be converted to bootable usb stick), I would strongly suggest to base it on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Then add the paparazzi ppa and the packages in there...
You could take a look at Ubuntu Builder, some info:

Hi, it´s not better to have a working live CD , Kernel 3.6.11 in order to test paparazzi.
I write live-CD, but the deal is having a bootable usb stick, or a bootable cd and usb stick where the paparazzi code resides insiede the usb stick.
Tell me what type of packages is needed, inkl GEO tools, ... and i build such a image. I´m unsure if i should use a cd image or a dvd image or split the image.
The 64bit system need a dvd image, but on the other side, beside memory, that can be limited, i personally don´t see the advantage of running it on 64bit, but
for testing, it could be advantageous.
Tell me what do you think and what packages is needed.  The proposed live cd will be based on knoppix
and the usb add-on use overlay FS in order to be transparend for the user and that the base linux distribution don´t need to be updated that often.
