Yes, if your trees are uncomplicated and you only want to use Ancestry DNA then File > Import/Export > Export > GEDCOM File will often be OK.
As you say, you must remember to choose UTF-8 and omit all the Media.
But there are many features of FH that are not supported by Ancestry.
e.g. Custom Attributes, the Age and Address fields, Fact Witnesses, Place records, etc.
Also to enable Census matching, Ancestry prefers Residence facts to Census events.
The Export Gedcom File Plugin has an Ancestry setting that handles all that and more, as well as the UTF-8 and exclude Media modes.
