Per Wikipedia, SkySats have a mass of 110 kg, so 3 SkySats mass at 330 kg, requiring 2 Starlink sats to be dropped from the flight.I don't know the mass of the SkySat launch adapter, but if Starlink sats mass at 260 kg wet, 2 dropped Starlink sats would reduce the payload mass by 520 kg, not 330 kg. There are almost 200 kg of payload mass unaccounted for, an extra SkySat could have been flown (or the SkySat launch adapter is very heavy).
