My personal opinion is no - particularly as you say “I am a complete newbie to photography”.
Unless you know why and when you need them - I’d personally suggest that it’s worth getting to a point there you’re familiar with the drone and finding that you need them before complicating your life further.
They are certainly not an essential thing to use.
Personally, since they’re not needed for stills (unless one’s getting really arty with intentional long exposures), and I tend to take more stills than video … and taking them off / putting them back on / taking them off again is an annoying fiddle that also means bringing the drone back each time (such a shame that DJI don’t impellent taking stills whilst recording video!) … I very rarely use them.
If I was into pro level video, rather than just recording video for personal enjoyment more than anything … I would use them in the appropriate conditions.
