There's no assisted GPS or battery backup so every time the Crazyflie is powered on the GPS module does a cold-start, which a while to get a fix. During ideal conditions it should be 42 seconds (according to datasheet) but during testing we have seen times closer to 4-6 minutes. The plan is to improve this in the future by implementing assisted GPS (downloading almanac on the PC and transferring via CRTP).
Getting a position fix will not be as easy as with your phone, so make sure to be outside (or at least stick the Crazyflie a couple of meters outside the window).
If you don't have a GPS module you can still use the DebugDriver which will send fake latitude/longitude/altitude to the UI.
