No. Please see

Without knowing really better, please only use the imagery which is displayed by default in your OSM editor (JOSM, Potlatch2, iD, …).

If the resolution is not good enough for you, please collect GPS tracks; repeated tracking increases accuracy by enabling you to use a average track. Collecting and uploading them is always a good idea anyway (for checking the aerial imagery). And: if possible you should have visited the place which you want to map anyway.
