I am working on a 27-DOF robot. After the model is loaded on gazebo, it takes about 3 minutes for gazebo_ros_control plugin to be loaded. My question is: Is it possible to make it loaded faster? I know that some part of it has to do with the size of the .stl files, however, I would like to know if there is any remedy for it.

The distro of my ROS is indigo running on ubuntu 14.04.

Can you make an example github repo that has a model that demonstrates the slow load time?
