Yes.

It may drift a bit, and if its too breezy you may need to use hi speed mode, but it definitely flies in wind.

The visual positioning system will shut off though.

Not very many! Keep in mind that you only have a very short WiFi connection with Tello, so if a stiff breeze starts to push Tello away from you, it won’t be long before Tello gets blown out of range. So I’d say your risk of losing Tello is pretty high in anything other than a gentle breeze.

I've flown in (according to the BBC website) 10mph winds, it can get blown about a bit but never something that high speed mode couldnt make progress against.

As FlyMe says though, without a wifi repeater, a strong gust could set it drifting out of range.

dont fly it in winds above 5 mph, and your guaranteed fun.

I have tried the Tello in moderate breeze of 15mph but made sure I was in open space and had fast mode on. Tello did very well but did get blown about a lot and I almost lost it when a gust took it away out of wifi range. Learnt my lesson and got a wifi repeater and now I only fly under 12mph breeze. I find it a lot of fun actually flying it in conditions that people say it should not be flown :)

Same as robertv wrote
I never ever fly it in winds above 5 mph, and your guaranteed fun.
People had lost there Tello as flying in wind as you really do not know in 20 meters height what is the wind structure up there to drift you fast and away.
