I would like to develop a drone model of my own in simulation(Gazebo) for testing a few of my research ideas. Can someone outline stepwise the basic requirements to accomplish this?

The drone would have a kinect sensor with cameras and be capable of autonomous navigation

This is a very broad question. Can you narrow it down a bit by giving more details about what you're trying to accomplish?

I am trying to perform 3 dimensional multi robot SLAM with drones using kinect sensors. Currently defining my URDF for gazebo. Can you tell me how to implement and include custom controllers in the URDF

I believe you can find a lot of useful information in hector_quadrotor project. They already have gazebo model of their drone with laser scanner mounted.
