Hi all,

I made a robot(differential drive) which uses meshes as visual and collision elements. Robot executes a small to and fro motion for a small duration when it is inserted. When I apply velocity to one of the hinge joints, the robot moves rapidly; it goes up also. Here is the video. Why this is happening?
Here is sdf file and properties of each link.

SDF? We need to see your model file before we can help... It's likely due to mass/inertia properties being incorrect.
