My launch this file: ~/catkin_ws/src/rotors_simulator/rotors_gazebo/launch/mav_hovering_example_with_vi_sensor.launch

My launch file launch in this exactly moment:

 <arg name="mav_name" default="firefly"/>
 <arg name="world_name" default="basic"/>
 <arg name="enable_logging" default="true" />
 <arg name="enable_ground_truth" default="true" />
 <arg name="log_file" default="$(arg mav_name)" />

<env name="GAZEBO_MODEL_PATH" value="${GAZEBO_MODEL_PATH}:$(find rotors_gazebo)/models"/>
<env name="GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH" value="${GAZEBO_RESOURCE_PATH}:$(find rotors_gazebo)/models"/>
<include file="$(find gazebo_ros)/launch/empty_world.launch">
