Hi all. I'm trying to simulate 3 quadrotors which are transporting one load using ropes. I've used this guide link text and made 3 independent quadrotors. And now, i want to joint each of them with a load. When i'm trying to add some joints via "Model Editor", i can add joints only on one quadrotor. I've read here link text that it's possible to joint two or more existing models in Gazebo 7+, however i need to use Gazebo 6, to simulate such kind of quadrotors (using px4 flight stack). So, is there are any other ways to joint two existing models in Gazebo 6?

You can create joints between different models even without using nested models.

Take a look at this tutorial on how to use the <include> tag to add multiple robots and create joints between them.
