just a quick heads up: according to Prolific many of the chips currently on the market don't seem to be compatible with the upcoming win8; apparently only the PL2303->Rev D is compatible.
I am assuming with FTDI this won't be an issue.
If you're looking for a chip with all the 9 pins connected, I know from experience the ones from ATEN do this.
They are based on prolific though, but they are original chips with all 9 pins connected to RS232.
Not sure about this one thought but given the price I would expect it to have all the 9 pins connected too.
For some reason, it is increasingly difficult to find reliable USB to Serial adapters. There are so many counterfeits out there (especially with prolific chips) that it's hard to find a decent one.

No, they will not fit. Here at RoboSavvy we have a 4WD to play for about one year and the back of the standard motor already hits the motor housing.
You can check here more videos of a remote controlled 6WD with camera http://robosavvy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7366

There's some code to interact with this module from an embedded X86 board running XP or Linux called RoBoard here

Do you know the IC used by this device?
Does it have Linux support?
