Lidar on scaled objects

So transitioning from the simple robot tutorial to adding lidar, gave me some problems.
When I drag the lidar onto the body of my robot, it changes the lidar pattern.
The lidar is scaled accordingly to the body frame.

Is this intentional and if so, how can I correct it?

Hard to see on the gif, but my lidar is scaled: (1,1,1) before dragging
My robot body is scaled (0.2,0.1,0.05)
After dragging the lidar it is scaled accordingly: (5,10,20)
So it seems that it is the correct scaling, but the pattern is still weird.
