I am looking for a regular looking candle that appears to light itself. It would be radio controlled, and possibly gas operated, but I would like some ideas and thoughts

There are some plans for building self lighting candles in The Wizards' Journal #4 (on my site), but they are electric with battery powered igniters that actually light up a real candle. They could easily be made remote radio controlled by using a new item I saw this past summer at the camping goods store- a radio control battery operated tent light, so you don't come back from a hike to a dark tent out in the wilderness!

Depending on it's use, you might want to try a theatrical supply shop. They usually stock a battery operated flicker candle. I used one in a show in the spring that looked great from the audience. We put a white paper tube over the candle so that when we "blew it out" we switched it off and slide the tube up over the flame.

Most of the use of this candle was deep upstage and from the audience' pespective it was just a lit candle.

There are some chemical methods listed in the Dunninger Encycolpaedia of Magic. While some of the chemicals might be a bit hard to obtain, it would not take much for what you seek, and they should be out there. You might have to talk with a local science teacher to see who in your area could supply the things you will need.
