Hello everyone,

I trying to control a quadrotor in gazebo but I'm having some trouble. I'm able to control the velocity of each rotors using a PID+SetForce(), but the quadrotor doens't take off. So, I want to monitor the resulting force applied to the base link of the quadrotor to find the problem, if it doens't fly because I didnt apply a control yet or because the rotors are rotating without applying any force to the body of the quadrotor.

How can I get the resulting force applied to the base link?
