Depends on the airplane and the pilot skill... Generally if you have to land at 1/2 throttle and hold it on the runway with power to keep from having the plane get blown backwards its too much wind for the airplane.

EDF in my avatar stalls at 30 knots... it can handle 15 knots direct crosswind takeoff and landing.

Gentle Lady can have problems in 5 knots if you don't know how to make it handle wind. I've flown one in up to 15 knots.
