How to do quadcopter simulation with Gazebo?

Hello, I am completely new to Gazebo and looking for advice.

I have developed a mathematical model for a quadcopter. Now I would like to do a simulation with a quadcopter in Gazebo, and compare the results to my own model. I would like to be able to control the rotor speeds for the individual motors - and then log information about x y z, roll pitch yaw.

Does Gazebo have a such quadcopter model? And should I write my own plugin to control rotor speed?

Thanks for your time Soeren

Note that you'll probably have to implement the aerodynamic models yourself in a Plugin. Check out this answer for some good resources/examples.
