Velocity Instantaneously x Velocity With Joint Motors and How to Use

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to control the height of a UAV using predictive control. To do so I'm using the "Iris with Standoff" model, but I'm having some trouble to set the velocity of the rotor's joint. I followed the tutorial "Setting Velocity on Links And Joints" (http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=se...) and tried to use the "Set Velocity Instantaneously", but the UAV doesn't take off, independent of the velocity that I set, even though the rotors rotate. It seems to me, that I should set the velocity with joint motors, but I didn't understand how to use. I can't set the velocity using PID Controllers, because that is already in my controller. I'm setting the velocity with a plugin that is subscribed in a ROS Topic, all the "ROS Thing" is working, I followed the velodyne tutorial (http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=gu...). So, in my situation, how should I set the velocity? Instantaneously or with joint motors? And how can I do this?

I'm using Gazebo7, ROS Kinetic and Ubuntu 16.04.

The model.sdf and the plugin that i developed are below. Sorry if the post is too big, it is because of the models and plugins code, first time here.
