I have checked the box with the onboard compass and than click Live Calibration. I get the window with the the colored poles, but when I move my quadcopter around nothing happens. I got it to calibrat once before. I have tried everything I could think of to fix it. I tried reloading Mission Planner, resetting the APM, tried calibation with just the board by it's self. I have been working on it for awhile now and can't figure it out. Any advice will be greatly helpful.

What compass/gps are you using?

Other than that a reflash of the simonK firmware might be worth a try.

Other than that, if the machine is flying OK maybe its OK ... Tough call
Here's a couple of pictures of the output of the APM
