Default X56 is possible to change stick grip?

I'd like to use F-15 talon and Cobra Defender M5 stick grip on base x 56, is there any way to change stick as it can be done for warthog joystick?

Issues to solve:

1 - Find or make that 10 pins connector of X-55 base to install in "new grips". You find 10 pins round connectors but none match Saitek model.

2 - "Decode" what was used inside X-55 grip for manage buttons/HAT, if diode matrix or shift register... to re-do "new grip" internal wiring in the same standard.

3 - Drawn and 3D print... a collar for "new grips" that match X-55 pole threaded part. Like the guy did there.

4 - Decide what you will do with "twist rudder" - this is part of X-55 grip. See grip internals there.
